Sir Liam Donaldson has quit from his post as head of the NHS. About time too.
As a fully paid up member of the Labour Stasi, he has done as much as any Politician to make our lives more miserable.
Case 1: The Junior Doctor recruitment Debacle.
Case 2: Attempting to have a minimum price for Alcohol introduced.
Last night, Remedy UK, which represents junior doctors, said his resignation had come two years too late.
They called on him to go two years ago after the introduction of a botched online application system for junior doctors, which led to hundreds of candidates not being interviewed for jobs.
More than 15,000 doctors failed to find posts and some were forced to seek work abroad.
And earlier this year his relationship with the Government was strained after his plea for a minimum price on alcohol was rejected.
