And we thought Patricia Hewitt had a bad conference!
Patricia Hewitt may have been severely heckled at the Royal College of Nursing's conference but compared to some of her counterparts it seems she had an easy time! In the Czech Republic the Health Minister, David Rath, and his opposite number, Miroslav Macek, had a punch up at a meeting of dentists. This comes a month after Prime Minister Jiri Paroubek sent his leading rival, Mirek Topolanek, a pair of dueling pistols to challenge for a television debate. I always thought Czech elections were calm affairs but it looks like they could give John Prescott a run for his money!
