Mixing metaphors




The up the creek with one hand behind your back award for mixed metaphors goes to GPC negotiator Dr Peter Holden, who would surely win this award every year if we gave him the chance. Dr Holden warned that taking on commissioning while inheriting PCT debt would be ‘like swimming with our hands tied behind our back and several millstones around our neck’.

But he wasn’t done there. ‘It’s another landmine lying in wait for us,’ he added. A sea mine, surely?
