Cameron’s £12.7bn NHS lie confirmed by UKSA – but not yet censured

Steve appears to have been sharper than me on this. I also received the UK Statistics Authority’s reply today (exact same wording). My response was:
“I note with concern that this means the Prime Minister expects to put nearly £10 billion into the NHS over the next two years, when in the last three he has taken nearly £1 billion away (and I am unsure whether that includes amounts exceeding £1 billion that the Treasury clawed back from NHS budgets over this period)!
“He will need to be monitored constantly and I trust the UK Statistics Authority will continue to do so. Failure to fulfil his promises – for whatever reason – will require a strong public rebuke, to match the amount of exposure he has given to his claim.”

      That is a very good question. When I asked it on Vox Political a few weeks ago, the article received the highest readership in a single day ever to come to the site.
      I am currently working on a submission to the appropriate authorities, pointing out multiple abuses of this kind and requesting action.
