Plenty of Awkward News for Blair

Blair is in the editor’s chair at the Standard today.

Guido is looking forward to extensive coverage of the London hospital that has gone bust because of his own PFI scheme…

    It will not be the failure of the Labour PFI that’s made this trust go bust
    It will be blamed on the lack of monetary discipline of the health trust
    So Labour will again get away with being blameless

    BBC News last night made sure to lay it on thick that PFI was a Tory invention and that they have now come back to haunt the Tories. No fault ascribed to Labour and IIRC Tony Blair was present in soundbite form saying the investment in public service infrastructure had been astonishing or something like that.

    This man is an afront to democracy.
    The sooner some charity [my I humbly suggest the Mohamed Wiesenthal group] escort this man for some hard needed R & R the better.
    The world can do with a rest from this individuals helping hand

    This is nothing to do with PFI- its to do with overall financial sustainability of this continued myriad of Trusts in the London and English health system. totally wasteful and inefficient, with far too much capacity. But who’s gonna change it? Allow the Trust to go to the wall and shut the hospitals ? Not this knock-kneed Cabinet surely.
