HSJ's love-in with Labour policies is clearly at an end. It's back to the old doom and gloom scenario we have all learned to love as headlines from recent stories (news, pages 4-9, 26 October) show.

We had 'freezes - problem - low morale - bed blocks - deficit - overspending crisis - bleak winter - threat - winter pressures'.

Happy days! Plus ca change!
