Surgeon General Mrs Nightingown

NHS Chief Execuive Harvey Crippin, has unvieled plans to ditch modern day expensive medicines for more traditional remedies. Speaking outside Charing Cross Hospital Mortuary, he stated; "We will not be spending billions on chemical drugs any longer, if the medicines of yesteryear worked for our Grandparents, they can work for us".

Surgeon, Professor Sue Ture, said she was in stitches when she heard of; "This ridiculous idea that we can cure modern medical conditions with goose fat and old liniment".

Recently appointed Surgeon General, 93yr old Mrs Elsie Nightingown released the following statement.

"Eees been rownd ere again, the milkman's late and me feet are killing me. Can I ave a cuppa tea dear? Ave you emptied me comode? Where's me knitting?"

Prime Minister, Davinia Cameroon, said: "The new NHS will save us lots tax payers money, that we can waste elsewhere.

"And I am Unanimous on this."
