Hospital deep cleaning

January 15, 2008 2:36 PM

Let's get this straight.


People who think that the deep cleaning is a gimmick, at best:


The Lancet medical journal.


The cleaning contractors hired to do the deep clean.


People who think it is a good idea:


Gordon Brown - briefly an academic and then a journalist but, for most of his life, a full-time Labour politician.


Alan Johnson - moved into politics from a job at the postal union.


Sure enough, the deep cleans are going ahead at a cost of £50 million pounds that could be spent on the day-to-day cleaning that the contractors say would be more effective.  Another day in our politically managed public services.
