Only course left to GPs: resign and be damned

Having been initially in the cock-up camp I am now a full convert to the conspiracy theory. Your correspondents are angry and justifiably so. Who discovered Carr-Hill, the GPC or the Government? We know the answer.

This was designed to make reasonable people unreasonable. The discredited negotiators now talk of renegotiating the contract over five years or now accepting a bolt-on Red Book alternative. We are precisely at this point because we have rejected the Red Book contract.

Who seriously believes one, two or five years down the line we will have any alternatives to the one we face now. Resignation is our course of action now, and be damned.
