Health minister ‘like captain of the Titanic’
Friday 7th December 2012, 3:00PM GMT.
UNDER-FIRE Health and Social Services minister Hunter Adam has been described as the ‘captain of the Titanic’ by another member of the Policy Council.
Commerce and Employment minister Kevin Stewart said Deputy Adam was unfit for the post and needed to accept responsibility for the department’s £2.5m. overspend.
He said patience for the HSSD minister’s excuses had run out.
‘All that Hunter has done is tried to blame everyone else,’ he said. ‘He’s blamed the last States for not giving him an increased budget, he’s trying to blame Treasury and Resources for not approving the overspend.
‘He’s like the captain of the Titanic who swerved too late to avoid hitting the iceberg and now he’s blaming everyone else and refusing to go down with the ship.’
