A money article.

2014 Autumn Statement ... £ 2 Billion more for our NHS ... " Here , Here " in unison in the House ( Must have been a Member with a tray full of pints ? ) ....

Fast forward to 2017.

And , just where was that money spent ? Who were the beneficiaries ?

Judge for yourselves ... our NHS after all ... a cash cow ... for some ?

Somewhat akin to a £ 1 put into many charity tins ?

How many pence actually make their way to their chosen beneficiaries ?

That dreaded Barber again ... always taking too much off the top ?

Just in , a similar report in today's Guardian :

The Comments section towards the bottom makes interesting reading ... cuts across to several other threads recently posted in the News Section.

Very difficult to isolate articles at times as the subject matter does cover several areas.

Another report , this time in more combatant mode , from the Morning Star :

Take your pick !

Diplomatic or the " Come on then if you think yer hard enough " variety.

Bottom line is the same for all three.
