Election 2016: Labour promise the introduction of universal GP and universal health care if they remain in power

All parties have the Big Book of Election Promises open on their night table these days, it seems.

However, all party leaders must first make sure they rip the book’s first page off before reading it, the one that says: ‘The content of this book is pure fantasy. Any resemblance to verity and accountability is merely coincidental.’

Labour have today said that they will introduce universal GP care, and also lay the foundations for universal health care, if they are re-elected.

It was a day for promises of the health kind. Mimicking the plucking of uncomputable figures out of thin air, Labour’s policy estimates that they would create 2,800 new nurses and 500 new consultants posts, and that they can call upon a €50m pot for ‘reforms’.
