BBC misrepresents UKIP on NHS - naughty bias...

The BBC has been misrepresenting UKIP policy on the NHS, purporting that UKIP would cut spending by 1/3rd.

The truth is different: The UKIP manifesto says UKIP would:

Make no cuts in front line services but substantially reduce waste and bureaucracy

Use NHS funds better, by abolishing overlapping layers of bureaucracy.

So, which B in BBC stands for bias?

PS Under Labour, NHS spending has risen massively, effectively by £42 Billion per year, without real benefit. Even common sense dictates that substantial savings, particularly in bureaucracy, must be available without injury to front line services. ‪
