By 999callfornhs, Aug 9 2018 12:35PM (PERMISSIONS  GRANTED) Steve Carne keeps getting dragged into the pit… The image of vicious piranhas fighting for flesh, (made in desire for a dramatic context I confess in yesterday’s blog about Babylon), seems to be ever more relevant and continues to grow as more corporate quibbling and quarrelling now truly “disrupts” every layer of the once public service NHS.
