Originally slated for publication in December 2015, the plan was eventually put online on 1 August 2016 to the immediate derision from seemingly the whole health sector.

It’s election time – that glorious few weeks or months when everyone furrows their brows in an attempt to make sense of the many complex issues facing the UK, trying to make an informed choice as to which party is best to address them.

So, you’ve probably heard of Katie Hopkins? You know, the lady from the 2006 series of The Apprentice who is now somewhat of a “TV personality”.
Every so often Hopkins, who runs a business consultancy firm and writes a column for The Sun, will appear on television, say controversial things, and use Twitter to elaborate on her views. She has over 320,000 followers on the social network site.

A man from Los Angeles who took on the challenge of drinking 10 cans of Coca-Cola a day put on a staggering two stone within a month.
