  1. Personally I’d feel far safer being cared for by a band of civilian volunteers than be abandoned to the ‘professionals’ of the NHS. The volunteers would certainly have more care for their patients than the pros who merely do as little as possible to justify their wages.

  2. It wouldn’t be a problem to have more doctors if the medical schools were forced to give up heir guild system of restricting places. We wouldn’t even have to let in any AAAB students, there’s plenty of AAAA applicants to get rejected who would quite happily be paid a little less to enter the career of their dreams

    The government, Universities and BMA/RC** work to limit the numbers on the basis of planning.

    Jack of all trades, master of none? Now I could probably scare up a couple of thousand words on all of them, but football? “I Know Nothing”, Pop Culture – not since the 60s-70s. Tech I’m a bit more clued up about, and you need to be in that field to write knowledgeably & tease out the subtleties. Actually, thinking about it <lightbulb moment…>, that applies to all those fields. So has journalism progressed!
