Te BBC is drowning in stories about an NHS in crisis due to a shortage of doctors and money stories. Natch it is the evil Tories who are to blame although, the inconvenient truth , is that the Tories keep on increasing NHS spending to new record levels. There are no spending cuts. Meanwhile the refuse to report the Val d'Isere scandal.

More than 500 doctors are right now in the ski resort at a conference which - as it is part of maintaining their training - they can claim from the cash strapped NHS the cost of attending. As you can see below there are no seminars during ski-ing hours.What percent of NHS workers are on holiday or training courses this week or indeed in January during peaqk flu season? Natch there is no data on that but the answer should be 0%.

The NHS knows when peak demand will be ( January and February) as that is when flu strikes. A well managed organisation would simply ban all holidays anmd training days in those two months. But the NHS is not well managed. However much cash you throw at an organisation this badly managed it will always fail, especially when it employs the sort of greedy and selfish bastard currently "training" at taxpayers expense in Val d'Isere.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Now really is an ideal time to talk about FTSE 350 and also AIM executive greed

I start with a swipe at the failings of the deadwood press and the behaviour of the soccer Premier League. More on the former in a podcast on my own website later this weekend – a promise for comrade Euro Loon Jonathan Price. Then a look at Debenhams whose demise I regard as a silver lining from the Covid 19 cloud. I think Zombie firms should all perrish. But the main part of this podcast looks at Executive Greed and with firms asking either investors or the taxpayers for a bailout now is an ideal time to lance this boil.
