Billions in, zilch out

Civitas' voter briefings are very well put together. Most striking for me were these two adjacent lines, at the very beginning of the report on the NHS:

NHS expenditure in England has increased from £33 bn in 1996/97 to £76 bn in 2005/06.
The Office for National Statistics estimated that from 1995 to 2003 productivity had increased between minus one and zero per cent.

I think Civitas may, in those thirty or so words, have destroyed the credibility of whole New Labour project when it comes to the health service.
