Quote of the day

Andrew Lansley (here):
"I am sorry if what I set out to do has not communicated itself."
A strangely convoluted formula. What he set out to do (allegedly) was to reform the NHS in England. It is as if that action plan itself bore the responsibility for communicating with the nurses, the medical profession and the general public, thus neatly shifting that responsibility away from Mr Lansley. It didn't work of course. Rightly or wrongly, Lansley will be forever associated with what is turning into a major disaster for the coalition government.
