Responding to the news that the Labour Party has been caught sending alarmist literature on breast cancer to cancer sufferers, Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said:
At a meeting of Conservative bloggers I attended a short while ago, Eric Pickles warned that Labour would fight a very dirty campaign, even so, I didn't think that they would sink this low.
“It is shameful that the Labour Party, knowing that we are the only party that is going to increase investment in the NHS, have decided to deliberately scare patients and misrepresent what we have said. I’m actually rather shocked that they are trying to target breast cancer patients and alarm them by making up stories about what the Conservative Party would do.
I think Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary, should write to every woman Labour sent these cards to and apologise and withdraw these claims.”
