GPs underfunded as 'penance' for signing 2004 contract, says Hunt


Forgive me Jeremy for I have sinned. It's been 11 years since my last confession when I voted for a new contract because the old one was sucking the life out of me. I have squandered all the money the government gave me and sat on my arse doing nothing between the hours of 630pm and 8am week days and all day Saturday and Sunday. Please allow me to do penance by working in the evenings as I have no time in the day as I'm seeing 40+ patients a day. Cut my pay and take away my lump sum and tax relief. Add a few more years to my pensionable age, please, as I now feel cleansed by the work. I beg you to allow me to work Saturdays and Sundays so I can be absolved of my sins against the government and my utter greed and comptempt for the tax payer. My family will be so happy to see me content once again.
