The Government is attempting to use the undoubted momentum of its election victory to tackle issues and interests from the outset. But as things stand it faces battles with the BBC, the trade unions and now the BMA as well.

Putting aside the over-riding need to get a deal over European renegotiations, such battles take a huge amount of time and effort to deal with. It also requires, when push comes to shove, public support.

The Conservative know that they have a historic weakness where it comes to the NHS. It is not clear whether people want wholesale change made to the BBC. With the trade unions, the Government does appear to have more support.

If economic measures start to slide whilst the Government is engaged in these other battles then this put a further strain on support.

The campaigning on all sides is only just beginning.
