Vox Political writer inadvertently aids government NHS hospital plan. Have you done the same?

Johnson: I’m delighted to declare this brand-new hospital open! Nurse: It’s not a new hospital, sir. Johnson: It looks new to me! Nurse: It’s a community centre that we’re using to give people Covid-19 vaccinations. And you’re a twit.

You may have noticed there were no new articles on Vox Political yesterday (August 27).

This is because on August 26 I spent the evening out with friends where certain beverages were imbibed.

It was my first time out on such an evening, really, since Covid-19 arrived here in early 2020, and I soon discovered that I was not in any condition for it.

The hangover was shocking.

So on Friday morning I opened a box of Paracetamol (other painkillers are available) and dived in. I’m astonished to discover that, in so doing, I was opening a new NHS hospital.

I had no idea that’s how it works now!

Sadly, my contribution will not count towards Boris Johnson’s 40 because I am in Wales.

If you’re confused about any of the above, here’s an explanation:

Of course, some people have chosen to satirise this new initiative…

… but I’m above that. I merely want you all to know that I’m doing my bit!

(Oh, all right. For the facts – and the reason we should all be angry about Boris Johnson’s – and, originally, Matt Hancock’s – lie that they were building 40 (now 48?) new hospitals, see the Independent report below, explaining that NHS England is being ordered to declare that any slight building work on already-existing hospitals is to be treated as a new hospital in order to make up the numbers. And when I say “make up”, I mean “lie about”.)

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Whereas my local Hospital has been under threat of closure for quite some time and 163000 residents expected to share a hospital in a neighbouring but much smaller town.
    As for hangovers, I’ve forgotten what they are, having not been to a pub since 2019.

    When will little fascist dictator crook duck johnson announce he has magically employed 50,000 nurses??? Yes you guessed it – fascist criminal duck johnson is about to install cardboard cut outs in hospitals and all these will be the new nurses! Mainstream media will be ordered by fascist tories to report 50,000 new nurses now employed in NHS hospitals and woe betide anyone who challenges these latest fascist lies!
