Mandate? What mandate?

Although STV Action is neutral between the Government and the junior doctors in their present dispute, we cannot accept one of the Government’s arguments.

The Government claims a mandate from last year’s General Election to reform the NHS and introduce its proposed new contract for junior doctors.

But only 36.9% (between 3 and 4 out of 10) voters voted for the Government. What mandate is that?
