Sajid Javid is deliberately blaming those working in the NHS for failings that cannot be of their creation, but are of his making

I wrote this on Twitter last night:

 It is the most basic of all freedoms that we have the right to decide. Descartes argued that this was the essence of being. Viktor Frankl was living testimony to it being all that is left in extremis.

It is my suggestion that we have to exercise that right. Indifference is not an acceptable option in the face of wrongdoing.

Sajid Javid is deliberately blaming those working in the NHS for failings that cannot be of their creation, but are of his making, or were created by predecessors in his office from his own party.

Worse, he is stoking animosity towards those who are doing service in the NHS as a result of which I suspect many of them will suffer. There will be many who will endure anguish as a consequence. I fear there will also be physical harm.

This is unacceptable. We have the right to say so. We should. I am.
