As I am sure you will be aware from our site we have lots of friends and clients in the pharmaceutical industry and one of our best friends (who will remain nameless to protect the guilty) sent this joke through this morning.
Here’s the joke ….
The British Medical Association has weighed in on the new Prime Minister David Cameron’s health care proposals. The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve. The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception. Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted. Pathologists yelled; "Over my dead body!" while the Paediatricians said, "Oh, 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 just wouldn’t hear of it. The Pharmacologists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter…." The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, but the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the a*******s in London.
However, if you want a serious view on the British Medical Association’s view on the government’s plans, please refer to the article on the BBC website – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-12203000
