Politicians getting cranky, probably need a nap

It was all business for a while there press-release-wise, it’s good to see the people we elect into positions of power and responsibility have managed to get back to the important task of spending their time attacking each other.

Wait, did I say good? I meant horribly depressing.

“I strongly reject any accusation by the opposition that the ACT Government has a history of manipulating waiting lists,” the Chief Minister said.

“This accusation is simply untrue and is not supported by any evidence. It’s time the opposition leader stopped having it both ways when commenting about this important area of service delivery in the ACT health system.

“The opposition leader is on the record criticising the government about waiting times for surgeries in the ACT health system, however, also he is now seeking to criticise the government for rolling out a new and legitimate way of managing waiting lists for elective surgeries.

“Mr Hanson cannot have his cake and eat it too on this issue and while the government is getting on with the job of managing this complex area of our health system the opposition is getting bogged down in baseless political attacks.

I choked when I read “I strongly reject any accusation by the opposition that the ACT Government has a history of manipulating waiting lists”. Tea came out of my nose.
