Tory Ministers are worried that the destruction of the National Health Service will be equivalent to Mrs Thatcher disastrous Poo Tax.
Everyone remembers the terrible pain caused by the Poo Tax, when every shit cost £1, leading to chronic constipation. Not only that, the spying by Government of both public and private toilets caused riots and the downfall of the Ironic Lady.
'I would go out and shoot Andrew Lansley, our awful Unhealthy Minister' said a Tory Cabinet colleague 'he is leading us into Poo Land - and I don't mean Winnie the Pooh. We will only recover if we scrap the Bill and find a more subtle way of killing off the NHS'
This reflected the view that Lansley had let too many cats out of the bag by his push for legislation. 'We should have just gone ahead and replaced the national health with private companies, not mess around with legislation!' exclaimed Tory backbencher Glanville Ponsonby-Smythe.
Secret plans to send Andrew Lansley to Syria to see how to manage a successful health service are said to be ready for execution.
