Vanity - The State's Opiate

As per the BBC:
"The government looks set to increase the amount it spends on advertising and PR to help it sell NHS changes and other policies to the public.

Next year's marketing budget is £285m, according to Cabinet Office figures.

That is an increase on the £168m spent by the now axed Central Office of Information in its final year."
Despite being stuck in a recession the state deems it more important to waste our money on PR and spin, rather than focus on pulling us out of the recession.

Seemingly "feelings" are more important than "finances".

Vanity is the government's opiate!
