This isn't X, this is pest control!

The papers today are running stories on the discovery that last year there were over 20,000 call outs for pest controllers in the NHS last year.

Apparently this is a sign that our hospitals are still dirty, Labour are rubbish etc, etc.

A typical silly season story that really needs some closer scrutiny:
  • How many cases were there last year?
  • Isn't this an indication that NHS staff are acting to get rid of infestations?
  • What are we counting? Wasps can easily get in through windows.
  • What was it like under the Tories, eh?
