Were you worried by the revelations in the mainstream media that babies born on weekends are more likely to die? Don’t be. It’s another dumb trick.

Notice the first point about causation. This Writer saw that and thought, “Sauce for the goose.” It’s exactly what the Conservative Government said about claims that the work capability assessment is causing deaths among benefit claimants, and now it’s being used to disprove a claim that supports the Conservative Government’s position on NHS contracts.
