Understanding economics is incompatible with shilling for the tories.

They love the free market except when the NHS labour force is voting with its feet.

Elderly people who fall won’t be able to get ambulance during strikes, says Steve Barclay
They can't get one in less than 12 hours anyway, unless they're very lucky.

In other journalism (or rather "journalism") news, it has been officially revealed that Sebastian Payne is a Tory.

I'm sure we are all shocked.

Maybe its just misremembering, but I'm sure his stuff for the BBC back in the day didn't show this level of basic economic illiteracy.

Hancock not standing at the next election.

Apparently he realised he did not need to be in parliament “to influence the public debate”.

Whereas I think the public realised when he was in Australia that they didn't actually need Matt Hancock

BTW - I have recently acquired the complete book of Clanger scripts which is keeping me occupied.
It was intended for xmas apparently but I received it early for good behaviour.
