Warning: Voting Conservative Could Lead to Premature Death!!??

on April 11, 2010 in Politics

In a sickening twist to the election campaign, Labour has targetted 250,000 women to receive postcards warning that a Tory government would kill them by delaying treatment for breast cancer. Many of the targetted individuals have personal experience of the disease.

There is some question as to what data was used to select these people for the personalised mailshot, but even if it was from statistical analysis rather than access to medical records such an advertising campaign goes well beyond the usual war of words between the two parties.

Targetting these people is bad enough, but surely it would have been far mare palatable to promote the proveable improvements in care brought in by the current government rather than the speculative decline under a future one.
