Government by slogan
Dr John Ashton believes we have a government that works though the use of slogans with its most recent causing widespread confusion. Dr Ashton is a British doctor and academic who previously held positions at the University of Southampton, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the University of Liverpool School of Medicine and, for 13 years, was Regional Director of Public Health for Cumbria. He was one of the initiators of the World Health Organisation’s Healthy Cities Project from 1986 to 1988 during which time it went from being a European project to a global movement and was a pioneer of three public health initiatives.
It may be too much to hope that the present debacle will see the end of Boris Johnson, though a number of people on social media are saying they doubt he will last till the end of the year. However, the Tories can be a loyal as well as a ruthless lot when it comes to leaders. But hopefully , in Scotland, Johnson and his incompetent government will have tipped the scales firmly in favour of independence.
