Cameron repeats his NHS £12.7bn lie in PMQs. Twice. Help shut him down.

Here’s another chance to throw mud in David Cameron’s lying face. In Prime Minister’s Questions today (Wednesday), he twice repeated his favourite falsehood – that spending on the NHS is rising under his (please don’t call it a) government. The Skwawkbox blog provides just a few reasons we know this isn’t true – and then asks you to help shut down Cameron’s lies. All it takes is a quick email to the UK Statistics Authority.
So go on. If you’ve got five minutes to read this, you’ve got five minutes to shut up the biggest liar in Britain. It won’t cost a thing and there won’t be any pain (well, not to you).

      This is what search engines are for. I have covered this subject previously and there are other matters that require my attention.

      However: If you Google “UK Statistics Authority NHS funding” you will find, around the third entry on the list, a pdf document entitled Public expenditure on health – UK Statistics Authority.

      That link shows you the letters on the subject, by Andrew Dilnot, chair of the UK Statistics Authority, to Andy Burnham and Jeremy Hunt.

      The Annex to the Hunt letter provides two tables. The first shows July 2012 estimates of public expenditure on the NHS. It states that spending for 2009-10 was 105.073 billion. For 2010-11 – 104.353 billion. For 2011-12 – 104.333 billion.

      You’re lucky that I had a spare moment.
