Battle of Margaret's shoulder (1)

Michael Howard has raised the case of Mrs. Dixon whose critical operation has been cancelled seven times. John Reid, the Health Secretary, is making a special (?) trip to find out what's been going on whilst Tony Blair suggest that "while the case was unacceptable, it was not fair to use one bad experience to undermine the NHS". I don't recall Tony Blair using such a caveat when he underwent his minor heart procedure and was able to proclaim that everything was wonderful in the NHS as a result of his experience."It reflects the tremendous dedication, expertise and commitment NHS staff show everyday throughout the country."
