NHS hypocrisy

Speaking on Sky News today Ed Milliband said
"The health service has a very low settlement in term of its financial position"

Suggesting that the government's plans to increase health spending in real terms (not just cash terms) year on year just don't go far enough for the opposition.

Which is odd considering in June Andy Burnham said "It is irresponsible to increase NHS spending in real terms" whilst in the same month now ex Shadow Chancellor Alan Johnson said "There is no logic, sense or rationality to it at all in the current economic climate, and it will do great damage to other parts of the public sector. You can make savings in the NHS and you can ensure those savings go into frontline care."

So does Ed Milliband want to lead a Labour party that is pro NHS cuts or has he decided to join the pro NHS Coalition government?
