The BMA’s reaction to the governments proposals for junior doctors:
The Allergists voted to scratch it but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The gastroenterologists had a sort of gut feeling about it but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve. The Obstetricians felt they were labouring under a misconception. Ophthalmologists considered the idea short sighted. Pathologists yelled. “Over my dead body!”
Paediatricians, on the other hand, just wanted people to grow up. The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The ENT specialists didn’t swallow it and the Pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow. The Plastic Surgeons said. “This puts a whole new face on the matter…” The Podiatrists thought it was a step too far and the Urologists were totally pissed off by it! The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas but the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say so.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the arseholes in Whitehall!
