Comedian Manford hits out at ‘sneaky’ Cameron

David Cameron was accused of using “sneaky tactics” to cover up failings in the “underfunded” and “overstretched” NHS by comedian Jason Manford yesterday.

Stand-up comic Mr Manford claimed the Prime Minister had failed the NHS after he was left waiting for two hours at Trafford General Hospital, Greater Manchester, for an appointment.

His girlfriend is reportedly expecting a baby and, after tweeting a photo of a sign directing patients to the ante-natal desk, he launched a furious rebuke of the government’s NHS policies.

In a series of tweets directed at Mr Cameron, the star said: “Oy David Cameron I’ve been sat in this underfunded, overstretched NHS hospital for over two hours.

“Your sneaky tactics make it seem as if it’s being badly run by incompetent and lazy staff, but the facts are these talented people are doing the best they can with funds you allow them.

“All the while you flame the propaganda that the NHS is failing.

“It’s not them that are failing, it’s you David Cameron.”
