Beyond a restatement of the commitment to an extra £8 billion in 2020 [...] detailed analysis of the financial needs of the NHS in England is underway. Department of Health and Treasury officials are poring over projections for health demand. They need to be sure that the £8 billion identified by NHS chiefs is realistic. That figure was reached after assuming highly ambitious efficiency savings of £22 billion by 2020. Ministers want to be assured that figure is achievable.

„Wir wollen euch scheitern sehen – Wie Häme unser Land zerfrisst“ von Chefredakteur Alexander Görlach: Wer als Prominenter öffentlich in Ungnade gefallen ist, der hat von der Gesellschaft nichts mehr zu erwarten. Deutschlands Bürger spielen sich als Richter auf und treten gerne noch mal nach, sobald ihre Vorbilder zu Fall gebracht wurden. Alexander Görlach zeigt, wie das Anprangern zum Normalzustand werden konnte, und ergründet die Ursachen deutscher Häme. In einer solchen Gesellschaft wird sich niemand mehr engagieren wollen.
