Comments on "Secretary of State for Health visits Ottery Hospital but leaves at speed, James Bond style!"

Are there any more James Bond films in the offing? The opponent to be avoided was Ottery’s Devon County County Councillor Claire Wright, rather than Smersh or Goldfinger. And the car was a Jaguar, rather than an Aston Martin, but Health Secretary Nick Hancock’s desperate attempts to avoid Claire, reminded this observer of Sean Connery and Roger Moore’s antics. Fortunately there were no slow moving vulnerable elderly people in his way.

Cowardly and without doubt party political. However Claire, if this results in a positive health outcome we all know that it will have come about through the pressure from you and Martin

Hancock’s problem is that he knows nothing about the NHS so would not be able to easily engage with the public on the subject.  He does apparently know something of things digital and has visited Ali Parsi’s company to help them sell their hand held product Babylon to the NHS according to the Health Service Journal.

Congratulations again Claire. You not only have them rattled, you have them scared. You know you are doing the right thing when you get this sort of reaction. Let us watch out for another pathetic smear attempt soon. Have you been kicking cats or eating babies recently? Or have you just been so vulgar as to be ‘political’?

Well done Claire! Without advocates like you the NHS would be history! We all need to fight for the tomorrows!

Well done, Claire. I’ve only met you once at County Hall when I witnessed the farce of local government ‘demockracy’ (the ‘k’ inserted by myself) and how they tried to close you down.  I’m writing to Hancock, under the heading ‘Hancock’s Half Hour’ to accuse him of cowardice after slinking away from Ottery St. Mary Hospital. Let’s hope a Labour government will see him and his kind consigned to history.
