Two headlines from the BBC News site today.

1. TUC calls for curbs to 'stratospheric' executive pay

“the average FTSE 100 boss was paid 123 times the average full-time salary.”

2. Seven-day NHS 'impossible under current funding levels'

“80%" of England's acute hospitals are in financial deficit, compared with 5% three years ago .”

Have we, as a nation, got our priorities wrong?

    Sadly the answer is yes. But don't forget-we are all in it together :wink:

    Well that'll be alright then as it'll stop us kicking up a fuss - if our ailments haven't already done so.

    Does our government recognise what its voters priorities are in the first place?
