It’s been ages since we’ve seen Anas shouting about dead babies in a Glasgow hospital.
In the festive spirit, remembering that other baby perhaps, Alan Roden (almost the perfect surname for the job?) pops up to breath new life into the story with the interesting idea that London-centric broadcasters are ignoring a great story.
Yeh, they’re biased against Scotland! Didn’t I tell you?
Here’s a bit of his ‘thinking‘:
Completely ignoring the expert opinion, the stats showing that the QEUH has slightly better than average mortality rates and clinging to the notion that ‘after‘ is at all akin to ‘because of‘, Roden (no t) wonders why English reporters, without a rabid anti-SNP agenda, are not getting Anas snapped with dead babies on their front pages.
Here’s a thought or two. They know it’s not substantial enough to investigate? They’ve seen far, far worse cases of proven malpractice in English hospitals, with many dead, languish on the back pages and fail to make the TV news. Here are just three:
At some level, I’m guessing Roden knows this too.
