Opinion Leader Research receives £1.05 million from NHS budget

According to the Health Minister, Andy Burnham, the NHS consultation "Your health, your care, your say" which closed in November 2005 had a total bill to the taxpayer of £1.39 million out of the department's running cost budget.

Of that money, 75%, or £1.05 million went to Opinion Leader Research. That is the same Opinion Leader Research headed by long standing Labour Party consultant, member of the Smith Institute, and friend to Gordon Brown, Deborah Mattinson.

Given that the NHS running cost budget is ultimately in the hands of the Treasury it makes sense to square the circle.

Regarding the "poll" yesterday they performed at the behest of Gordon Brown, I wonder who the "20 in politics and government" were?

The Sith strikes again!
Nice to know that Gordimmo is not up to anything so sleazy.
Although with his experiences in the last general election he knows a thing or two about laundering funds.
