Politicians want voters’ anger to fall on us

Suddenly politicians of all parties are desperate for GPs to take on commissioning. Why?

Because they want us to take the responsibility, and the blame, for rationing in the NHS.

They want the anger and the vitriol of the electorate and of the media to fall on us, rather then them, when it becomes clear that NHS 'consumers' cannot have everything which they have been told they are entitled to.
