George Osborne NHS cartoon
Pledging £2 billion in funding for the health service which in many areas of the country appears to be in a financial crisis. Llabour criticised this move by pointing out that £750 million of this assistance was already going into the system. Not for the first time would the Chancellor face charges of the spin and creative accounting and it would seem the country is beginning to show little apetite for further cuts to public services and the privatisation of the health service by stealth could be politically very costly for the Conservatives who will be relying very heavily on their friendly media to seel the cuts and reforms positively to the electorate in the run to the 2015 UK General Election.
