Did you know that from today (Saturday) ambulances in some parts of the UK will attend emergencies without any trained paramedics on board to administer first aid and essential life-saving drugs?

The move is – of course – to save money.

And no doubt when enough complaints are received and even some deaths happen as a result of the policy – the government will have more excuses to completely privatise the ambulance service.

So why is it not deemed important enough for the front pages in the mainstream press?


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
