There comes a point in the twilight of any MPs career when they just stop lying. Maybe it’s a lifetime of regurgitating compromised ideas and lesser evils, but at some stage they gain their humanity and just start calling it like it is.
I am hopeful that is happening right now with the good Dr Paul Hutchison. He wooed us with his honest and graceful debates on marriage equality…
…and now he is being dignified in his criticism of children’s health…
National MP calls on govt to take leadership role in children’s health
The head of the Parliamentary Health Select Committee, National MP Dr Paul Hutchison, is calling for the government to back his committee’s recommendations that more focus and funding needs to go to pregnant mothers and babies.
“We are calling for leadership from the top and the reason for that is indeed they are holding the purse strings [Finance Minister Bill English and Health Minister Tony Ryall],” Dr Hutchison says.
…the myriad of issues the government won’t face honestly are now open for the good Dr to start providing his opinion on. Watch this space.
