The Illogicality Of Coalition Thinking

The Daily Telegraph yesterday reported that hospital car parking charges would stay in place. From the report we read:
"A spokesman for the Department of Health said: "We can't be in favour of decentralisation, and greater autonomy for NHS and then tell them how to run their car parking."
So, in the process of decentralisation (and thereby devolution of power), the people are unable to change a policy with which they strongly disagree, imposed on them by those they had no opportunity to elect.

What's wrong with charging for a limited resource?

The long term ill tend to claim it back from charity.

Still believe something imposed by those not elected basically wrong!
