I am invited by so called journalists to attack the NHS and side with Republican criticisms of it. I have this simple message for journalists now wanting me to appear on this topic – try reading what I wrote about the BBC and Obama’s health plans. This is just more lies and more pathetic attempts to smear. Don’t waste my time by asking. Check your facts first.
The handling of this issue just shows how desperate Labour are and how they still have power with the media. Labour wants to make lies about Conservative attitudes to the NHS central to the election and is trying to create the stories around this theme.
They are pulling out all the stops against Dan Hannan. Their websites condemn, and they are using welovethenhs to build the story. Shouldn’t grown men who are meant to be governing the country have something better to do than to whip up a storm about one MEP’s remarks? What matters is what Ministers do . It would be good if they tried a bit harder at the day job and spent a bit more time explaining what they are up to and defending it.
