and on the BBC’s response:
Authoritarian just does not seem to quite cover it, even. There is a hint of indentured servitude about it all.
This, of course, is being dressed up as a "Constitution for the NHS", where so-called "patient rights" actually translate into obligations and limits on freedom.
And for a somewhat less reserved take, try The Devil's Kitchen.
The BBC appears to swallow it whole and not even offer a whimper of dissent or critical analysis of the implications this brings with it. The ease by which the BBC abdicates its duties towards the people of the UK appears to have no bounds. Again. However many times it happens, it still has the capacity to disgust.
