Buggering up the English NHS … again
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
The Financial Times reports that No Mandate Brown left a little present for the English before he left the Treasury – a £2bn cut in funding for the English NHS.
It’s not the fact that he has no mandate on health with it being devolved in his own constituency, it’s not that he kept it quiet until after his coronation, it’s the fact that the Barnett Formula is being fudged so that the cut in health funding won’t be passed on to Scotland that makes me so fucking angry.
The Goblin King has defended the Barnett Formula saying that it’s a fair way of distributing funding to the “nations and regions” based on need.
