For pity’s sake, My Black Cat, will you go and fetch The Abacus.
You’ll need to do some sums.
You’ll need to treble check some figures.
It seems that some of the great and the good need their heads banged together.
They don’t seem to be able to count.
Surely someone among this lot passed O level maths, My Black Cat!
On Thursday of last week NHS Behind the Headlines identified a rather peculiar statistical anomaly being promulgated by The Patients Association.
Here’s what Channel 4 Factfinder said:
And then a spokesman from The Patients Association seemed to think it didn’t matter if the figures quoted were statistically bizarre.
He thinks it is all the fault of everybody else for checking them!
Is everybody going mad on this planet, My Black Cat?
Even Jobbing Doctor couldn’t get peace to make his damson jam on his day off.
Tell me when you’ve checked it out.
My old brain can’t handle sums.
So maybe that qualifies The Witch Doctor to be a Leader of The Patients Association.
Glory be, My Black Cat. Why are they calling themselves Leaders?
Why does everybody have to be leading somebody somewhere nowadays?
And why can’t Leaders count?
