Click on the Sky News logo to watch a rather enjoyable interview with Patricia Hewitt getting a rather vigorous grilling from Adam Boulton. Hewitt tried the 'absolute nonsense' line for the umpteenth time and it did rather rebound in her face.
It is interesting that she mentioned the word 'doctor' so many times, it seems rather coincidental that these decisions as regards not treating smoking/obese patients were the same across whole PCT areas. It seems pretty obvious that these are PCT rationing decisions as a direct result of the government imposed deficits. It was good to see Adam Boulton not letting her get away with her typically illogical arguments.
