Glad to hear the Bulgaria 'fact' being put in to some proper context. Thank you.
Good blog Patrick - cuts through the patronising banalities (".. our marvellous nurses .. blah blah") with which each of the leaders attempted to outdo each other on the telly debate and it identifies the policy issues, thus far not exposed to the electorate, where there are important choices to be made
As health care is known to be the second most important issue in this election, and this was the one debate where health policy is up for discussion, it was a shame the host did not feel fit to be more rigorous in the questions put forward in this area - a missed opportunity. Given the tight financial environment that is coming in NHS, it would have been helpful to know more about what their guardianship will mean for the NHS.
Yes - leaders debate on health did not set world on fire - shame as alongside crime it's one of the issues public will vote on.
