My favourite Indian Bicycle Marketing of the day.

Ed Miliband, on super tip-top form, promises an emergency recruitment drive to get 1,000 more nurses into training this year if they win the election.

According to the NHS Confederation, NHS England alone employs 377,191 qualified nursing staff.

According to the Daily Mail, about 5,500 NHS nurses left to work abroad last year.

Assuming a nursing career of forty years, about 10,000 new nurses start each year and 10,000 retire.

So 1,000 nurses is not even a bloody rounding error, is it?
