This Site reported recently that 10,375 more people died in the first seven weeks of 2018 than the average over the same period in the previous five years.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt had an opportunity to account for this 12.4 per cent increase in Parliament yesterday (March 21) – but instead gave a pathetic excuse. Here it is:

I would like to see those Age-Standardised Mortality figures.

Public Health England’s own statistics for the first weeks of the year all say the same thing: “Statistically significant excess all-cause mortality by week of death was observed overall.”

I think Mr Hunt was lying – or at least making another of the statistical errors for which he has become justly infamous. What do YOU think?
