    Things like A&E waiting times, when you look at the extremes, usually represent a fairly sensible response. You will see stats for people waiting over eight hours and so on: I would hazard a guess that they probably shouldn't be there in the first place and are not emergency cases.
    Yes. We should judge what is going on and design policy based on guesses -____-

    Ahhh, that makes it ok then. I thought the Tories were supposed to be better at managing the economy than labour? Cut the deficit, not the NHS and all that. I'll tell the old people being forced to sit on a chair in agony when they should have a bed. I'm sure that will cheer them up.

    Do you think that underfunding critical health services won't have an effect?

    It is reasonable for medical professionals who understand the effects on patients of underfunding resources to point this out.

    A lot of "experts" on the economy told us that leaving the EU could cause serious problems for the economy. They also happened to be Remain supporters. Did you ignore what they had to say because they were pointing out the disasters that would ensue if they didn't get their own way?
    But if like Matilda you have been telling such dreadful lies for the last 50 years, it is only to be expected that you will not be believed.

    You're drawing your own conclusions from statistics as much as I am. Raw statistical data tells us very little about performance, and centralised target-chasing ends up leading to a lot of perverse disincentives to improve performance.
