Labour pledges to train 5,000 new GPs a year

Comment

What is this political obsession with the number 5000? Never 4000 nor 6000, always 5000. Is it just a neat round number, or did it please a focus group? Or perhaps Hunt, Hancock and Ashworth suffer from a Messiah Complex regarding the NHS and are channeling “The Feeding of the 5000” with 2 loaves and 5 fishes (which would at least explain their ludicrous promises of inflated outcomes from pitifully inadequate resources).
