Tweet It was interesting to read today that Wales apparently has a grand total of 12,000 millionaires. As I understand it, these are the wicked people whose prediliection for taking time out of their busy schedules to visit their doctors to obtain prescriptions for free paracetamol, according to the Tories, is bankrupting the Welsh NHS.
I found myself wondering just how much paracetamol such a small number of people must each be popping in order to arrive at such a horrendous situation. A packet of 16 pills costs around 20p, so if each of them gets a packet once a week all year round, the total cost of the tablets would be a massive £120,000. To be close to bankrupting the whole NHS, I dread to think how many tablets they must each be swallowing.
Perhaps the real problem which the Tories keep highlighting is a widespread addiction to painkillers amongst the very richest people in Wales.
