From A Cabinet Meeting 2013

Good Morning every one.

Good Morning Prime Minister.

Health Secretary have you seen this libelous blog about your department?

Yes Prime Minister.

Is this how people see our management of the health service?

Unfortunately yes Prime Minister.

This is terrible why haven’t you put a better spin, I mean a factual account out to the media so that the public can see it is all false.

Well prime minister most of it is true.

What! You are going to kill everyone off.

No Prime Minister although it is a very good idea.

Your Department doesn’t have a plan like this?

Oh no, no, though we do have a working document, which isn’t quite the same as a plan.

What do you mean?

Well if hospitals got so bad that they became a danger to public health we have a contingency plan to deal with the issue.

Explain.

If hospitals became a bit like Porton Down and were spreading serious diseases around like bubonic plague or a new super bug, well, you wouldn’t want people lying around in the streets, you know dead bodies rotting away, so we have a plan in place to deal with such an eventuality.

Could we bring this in?

No. The papers and television would be all over us I can see the headlines, death camps set up, they hate us any how.

Let me see, we have got Levenson to  sort out, how about we do an upgraded version of Levenson with a censors office all stories have to be filed twenty-four hours before publishing after all Mrs Smiths family would not like the whole world to know that she lay dead in the street for several days while wild dogs feral cats and foxes eat her. Keep it nice and quiet, that way we can bring in this extermination plan, I mean restoring of public health plan.

Yes Prime Minister, a new Health (Termination of Illness) Act.

Prime Minister.

Yes Deputy Prime Minister.

I do not believe that my party would be able to sanction this Act.

Oh dear. Let’s see, how about this. At the next general Election the Conservative party will not field candidates where there are sitting Lib Dem MP,s how does that sound?

Deputy Prime Minister discussed the offer with his cronies.

I am sorry Prime Minister, no.

Alright then that plus five additional constituencies where the Lib Dem’s came second?

A rumbling of voices to see if the price is right.

Prime Minister the Liberal Democratic party have always put the benefit to the British people first before any private or party advantage, it’s a deal.

Right we put forward an upgraded Levenson to stop people finding out about our killing off of the old fogey’s, is that agreed.

AYE.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
