    ps: if the government succeeds in its apparent long-term aim of banning smoking altogether, with its attendant duty payable, where the f-ck’s the dosh going to come from to IMPROVE the service to the dying?

    It’s going to take me a bit longer to get through all 136 pages, but one small observation for now:

    if £500,000,000 is 2.5% of NHS end of life care budget, that means every man, woman and child in Britain spends almost £8 a week on this. That’s more than I spend on fags, and I reckon we shouldn’t still be at the debating stage while this sort of dosh is going down the toilet on our behalves.
