Clegg: NHS reforms will be pushed through

Click for Clegg's comments on BBC's Andrew Marr show
After another stormy week for Lansley's Health and Social Care Bill, in which most of the Royal Medical Colleges lined up to attack the reforms and the Observer reported that the Health Select Committee is set to deliver a damning report on the way the reforms are proceeding, Clegg sat down with Andrew Marr and indicated that the Lib Dems would not push very hard for any more concessions.

What is jaw dropping about the reforms is that the sheer scale of opposition - from health professionals, including both doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and health experts - appears to be falling on deaf ears.

The audacity of ministers claiming that GPs support the reforms when all the evidence points to the opposite is something to behold - something demonstrated by polls of GPs in 2011 and again in 2012.

The question is this: how long before the disaster-in-waiting causes real damage to the Government?
