The Government admitted today that the proposed budget for improvements within the NHS had been squandered on messages of thanks written all over the roads.
The Minister for Highways, Sir Peter Thape, told Cutting News that he’d taken the money needed for the road markings from a tin he’d found in the cabinet room.
But Thape had not realised that the money had been put aside by Boris Johnson for higher wages, and improved facilities within the NHS.
‘There was a load of money in a biscuit tin, in one of the cupboards; I just didn’t realise,’ said Sir Peter.
‘Then the Health Secretary asked where’s it gone, and was dead angry,’ added Sir Peter.
