LETTER: Government rules

With the new threat of a junior doctors’ strike I am beginning to wonder if they themselves know why they are taking this action?

Talk to one group and it’s money, talk to another it’s conditions and to a further group it’s about seven day a week working etc etc.

In truth it’s a clearly politically motivated move and the BMA should be ashamed of themselves as should some of the demonstrators who have behaved like little children recently.

Remember we were told that doctors would be leaving this country “in droves”? - well, it hasn’t happened and I believe the general public will turn on these “gimme, gimme, gimme” professionals - without this support their cause will collapse. Stick to your guns Jeremy Hunt, the government rules the UK and not the BMA.
