The collapse of Britain's National Health Service continues unabated- and despite the extra £271 billion pounds in taxes being collected since Gordon Brown became Chancellor.
Around 200 jobs will be lost at York Hospitals NHS Trust over the next 12 months as part of an attempt by health chiefs to save around £7 million, it has emerged.
The Trust blamed financial pressure for the losses, citing national requirements for all hospitals to increase efficiency, as well as problems at the Selby and York Primary Care Trust, which announced debts of £23.7 million last month.
Across the country, cuts which will run into more than 6,000 job losses have been announced in recent weeks.
Needless to say, Labour's popularity continues to decline.
