An issue for the Prime Minister to chew on

.

.

First published in News

WHILE David Cameron dines on the fine fare provided by the taxpayer in the Commons, patients in his constituency are having to stomach the result of years of neglect towards hospital food.

The fact Witney Community Hospital has been rated third worst in the country for food quality should sit uneasily in the gut of the PM.

The notion of healthy food is not a new one, with plenty of media and government attention on school meals. But equally important is good, nutritious and appetising food on the NHS. It deserves as much work and commitment as the drugs used to treat patients confined to their hospital beds.

Hopefully Mr Cameron won’t cook up a quick-fix plan but will ensure the problem is properly tackled.

He might on the other hand feel that since the bureaucratic vagaries of the NHS have defeated all Prime Ministers since Attlee it is best left alone.
On the other hand he could seize success in a moment by declaring that since "Overseas Aid" in the context of a world in the grip of psychotics like Putin and ISIS is irrelevant and stability of infinitely greater importance the "overseas aid " budget so loved by the quangocrats of UNESCO and Oxfam will henceforth be devoted to allowing our Armed Forces to recover from the state to which he has reduced them. If people like Merkel then awake and Obama and Hollande are replaced by competent candidates some stability may indeed aid the oppressed throughout the world.
