Should have seen it on the news
This was on the local news last night - they were interviewing some manager or PR guy (dunno who) from the trust and the interviewer asked several times about the impact of the cuts on jobs.
The only answer the bod would give was "We are committed to providing excellent care for out patients" (I paraphrase). Do you detect the fault in the answer? Yes, that's right - it's an answer to a **completely** different question! Even though he was asked the same question several times, he seemed to either be (a) unable to understand English, (b) was stupid or (c) ...errr ...I'm running out of ideas.
Don't you just LOVE the way that people who are employed in a public capacity to provide services for the public, and paid for by the public at large seem to consider themselves completely unaccountable to that very same public when it suits them?
