BMA is plumbing the depths

From Dr Jim Beatson

Troon, Ayrshire

If I had had Dr Andrew Dearden at close range this morning I would have been sorely tempted to personally rearrange his internal plumbing. I am neither a plumber, nor a small businessman, nor a gatekeeper, nor a stakeholder,

nor a medical performer (News,

30 March).

I am simply a professional doctor at the coal-face wondering why we tolerate relentless degradation without meaningful protest. Could someone out there explain to me what purpose the BMA serves, apart from being a gentlemen's club?

May I suggest to Dr Dearden that he might refocus his mind to my promised large increase in pension which, under Government pressure, appears to be disappearing like snow off a dyke!
