How much of a Cnut do you have to be to do that?

Many NHS computer systems and departments have had to shut down.

They're probably sat at least one continent away and see the UK as rich. Sadly we know the truth.

They'd have got more money hacking a ex-member of Cameron's Cabinet, or Phillip Green, they'll all have more dosh swilling around than the NHS.

Probably Putin. Or the Tories doing it to finish off the NHS for good so they can make money out of illness.

Surely they've had plenty of time to fix it since Putin's day?? He's been gone a long time.
