Why oh why Mr Johnson?

Mr Johnson:
If the NHS means so much to you, why has the Tory government starved if of the funds needed to meet demand?
If health matters then why have you cut funding for public health over the last decade?
If children's education matters, then why have you let schools crumble?
If social care matters, then why have you not funded it?
If children's services matter, then why have you cut them?
If local democracy matters, then why have you starved local authorities of the funds needed for their statutory duties?
If you want to close the gap of inequality, then why has child poverty increased?
Why is pensioner poverty increasing?
Why are so many families having to depend on food banks?
Why is growth sluggish after a decade of Tory management of the economy?
Why is the United Kingdom at risk of breaking apart?
Why oh why Mr Johnson?

The press should stop speculating on Michael Schumacher

It is inevitable that the Media should speculate on Michael Schumacher's condition. But it would be better I think if neurologists not directly involved in the care of Michael Schumacher were not asked to speculate on the possible outcome. It was made clear at the outset that health care workers and family would make announcements if there was significant change in his condition and that they didn't want to deal with speculation. Quite right, and this should be respected. It serves little purpose to speculate, and Neurologists should say so if they are approached for their opinion.

It is natural for fans of the former Formula 1 champion (including me) to want to know how he is progressing. But clearly day by day commentary would serve little purpose on a process that can take months. Only when that process is completed will we know the extent of any functional damage. Let's wish him and his family well and be patient for news.
