What GPs are saying about the Scottish GP contract vote

Comment

Democracy is ,perhaps ,about making a definitive decision at a historic time. But democracy should be also about self-improvement to settle disputes to prevent more divisions AFTER this decision is being implemented. That is de facto what is lacking from the leadership of this government post Brexit . Watched Dunkirk and Darkest Hour both twice now , what was amazing about Churchill was not just mobilising those supporting his decision to fight Hitler or calling Operation Dynamo to rescue the boys stranded on the beach in Dunkirk, but in fact , accommodating and forming a pact with those who did not agree with his decisions including Chamberlain and Halifax ( of course , Eisenhower, Stalin etc later). There is a historic duty for those who are representing us(GPs) and I cannot underestimate how hard , though feasible, the task is ....... Remember the history lesson of how MPIG had to be created out of desperation. These 28% who voted NO are still our brother in arms in this battle against our common enemy.
