If you don't expect too much from the Daily Wail you won't be disappointed. And in its own limited field, one can certainly acknowledge that it does this sort of thing supremely well. Thus does the paper report that the "Health Service chief who has ordered hospitals and trusts to save £20 billion, is blowing more than £5,000 a month on taxpayer-funded expenses".

This is Sir David Nicholson, who has racked up almost £16,000 in three months on restaurant bills, hotel costs, first-class train tickets and a chauffeur-driven car.

And it is not as if Nicholson cannot afford to pay his own way. He is receiving £210,000 a year salary, one of the highest in the public sector, and has accrued a gold-plated pension worth £1.6million that will pay out retirement sums of £100,000 a year.

Yes looters but what savings and over what time frame? If only the Daily Mail would say.

From the 2012 Budgie, Table 2.4 lists NHS Departmental Expenditure Limits as follows

2011/12 £101.1bn (estimate)
2012/13 £104.3bn
2013/14 £106.9bn
2014/15 £109.8bn

I see no savings. The budget is growing slower than previously expected. You cannot 'save' money you had hoped to get but now won't. We're being robbed blind on a falsehood.

You forget that the modern definition of "savings" is not getting as big a budget as you asked for.
