Having read the latest outpouring from Dr Benett I have done everything I should do. I walked the dog, had a contemplative coffee watching the sun rise, a hot shower with some loud Mozart, and ten minutes meditation with the crossword. Yet still the most charitable thing I can say to him is this. You are wrong, very very wrong, and it's a good job I work a long way from Manchester in the twilight of my career. The Hutzpah of the man, this minority of one, who no doubt is on every Manchester GP's Christmas Card list, is astonishing. Less power to your elbow Ivan. I should imagine many younger colleagues imagine less temperate responses. Look forward to seeing you manning the braziers next week Ivan, or is the event a little "red" for you?
