Labour implicitly admits its centrally planned NHS has killed at a rate of about 10,000 per year !!!!

Hold on you say, that isn't the good news message that superman with his socks tucked into his trouser had authorised to have himself personally associated with from New York.

So how do I work this out ?

Well here goes.

This is based on a change of priorities from building to saving peoples lives. It could have been done 10 years ago. Its not the result of new technical advances.

Either the central planned and socialist lead health service was too demented by its monolithic size to make such an adjustment or they just couldn't be bothered.

Who gained politically from lots of new buildings being announced all the time ? Money can only be spent once (well not entirely true due to the multiplier effect - but the value it is traded for can only be used once ).

The spin says GPs support this move - well its a shame GPs couldn't have been empowered to organise it. But that's part of the problem with the NHS.

Brown sees this announcement as part of his fight back - I see it as an admission of his failure and the cost of that failure.

PS My guess is that despite all the smears and mud thrown at Dan Hannan New Labours (save their career at all costs to other people types ) have realised he has a point on cancer survival rates that they can't spin their way out of.

PPS Anyone see the media pointing out that this is an English only initiative ? In the English NHS? ( Update I have seen the BBC use the English prefix on their web site - but not on radio reports of the great news all must rejoice on hearing this morning )

Update: See what the future for the NHS really looks like once all the vote for me iniatives have faded away here.

Every time I hear one of Brown's adviser telling him to focus on Labour's 'successes', my heart sinks a little.
