As I Went Out One Morning
3000 Fewer deaths
97,000 Fewer hospital admissions
45,000 Fewer crimes
Nearly 300,000 fewer sick days
An end to world hunger and peace in the Middle East
Ok, I made the last one up, but you get the idea. I suppose “experts predict there could be” sounds better than some "people making a guesstimate", but honestly, what a cheek. Pure propaganda and paid for by the taxpayer. I don’t mind the NHS spending money on health education: eat an apple a day, don’t put your socks in the microwave, that sort of thing. But this has crossed the line into political campaigning.
I haven’t been so upset since they dropped the test card from BBC One.
