(Bloomberg) — The opposition Labour Party published its first campaign poster for the May 7 U.K. election, accusing Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives of getting ready to cut health spending if they win a second term.
“Next time, they’ll cut to the bone,” reads the headline above an X-ray picture of a fractured limb. “The NHS can’t afford the Tory cuts plan.”
Labour leader Ed Miliband has made the future of state-funded health care a central theme of the party’s bid to regain power, arguing the National Health Service will be hit by Conservative proposals to cut government spending over the next three years. Cameron says he’s committed to the NHS, under which most treatment is free at the point of delivery.
