James O'Brien's take on the latest round of junior doctor strikes is essential viewing.

Talking on his LBC show, O'Brien said that the latest round of industrial action shows junior doctors have come to the brutal conclusion: striking is the lesser of two evils.

"It's a horrible strike this, it’s absolutely horrible.

"There could be a million appointments that are postponed, there could be operations [cancelled] and there could be deaths, at which point presumably the politicians start hoping that the public will turn on the doctors."

"It’s fairly hard, isn't it, to escape the conclusion that the junior doctors have come to the conclusion that the strike is the lesser of two evils."

He continued: "They honestly believe that if they accept the terms of this contract and have their shifts spread across seven days, at a time...when they don’t have enough bodies to cover the five days they are currently doing...they must believe that accepting the contract will endanger more of us than these strikes.

"If there's a doctor in this country that wants these strikes, I'll eat my hat."
