“Sexy elective services numbers”, WTF?

Michael Bott, the tits lawyer standing in the Wairarapa for Labour, whinges about the success in getting more people the surgery they require.

“The fact is that funding cuts have reduced the capacity of many health services. Front-line staff are doing back office work as well and everything else is getting squeezed to put more money into sexy elective surgery numbers,” Mr Bott said.

I bet the patients didn’t think they were just “sexy elective services numbers”.

Of course Michael Bott isn’t averse to receiving his own state stipend in the form of legal aid. He scored $154,945.78 last year. Interestingly he is described as “Barrister, Wellington” in the list of payees.
