On the Welsh health service

This morning's Western Mail reports the continued 'cold fury' of the Welsh health minister at criticism of Wales' NHS from Westminster.

Mark Drakeford has described the Conservative Party's criticism of the Welsh NHS as a “cynical” and “deliberate” attempt to “drag the reputation of the NHS in Wales through the mud”.

There is no doubt that this dispute has got very heated over the last few days, but that does not disguise the fact that there are real problems on both side of the border that respective governments need to get to grips with.

Nevertheless, one cannot get over the impression that Mr. Drakeford is protesting just a little bit too much.

I have sat through many sessions in the Senedd when Welsh Labour Ministers have attacked the coalition government's record on health in England. Did they seriously not expect UK Ministers to reciprocate?
