Envy of the World Update

An independent panel has found:

  • At least 450 patients died after being given powerful painkillers inappropriately at Gosport Hospital
  • 200 more may have suffered a similar fate
  • there was a “disregard for human life” at the hospital
  • there was an “institutionalised regime” of prescribing and administering “dangerous” amounts of a medication
  • Dr Jane Barton, who oversaw the “practice of prescribing”, was found guilty of failings in her care of 12 patients but was not struck off

NHS staff closed ranks to cover this up. How many times?

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
