Cut off

A year ago in France, hardly anybody had heard of Emanuel
Macron, who has easily defeated the National Front’s Marine
Le Pen in the recent presidential election, and, at the time
of writing, looks to have founded a party that will win an
overwhelming majority in the French Parliament. Two months

election, but is now hanging onto her position by the skin of

and the concept of ‘our’ NHS. The UK spends, per capita,

As a proportion of GDP, it will fall to 6.6%, compared to 7.3%
in 2014/15, whereas the EU average is 1.7% higher at 9.0%.
The government’s expenditure on R&D in the sector equally

at the bottom of the list.
