Last week, to the surprise of many, veteran singer Rod Stewart contacted Sky News offering to pay for hospital scans for those who cannot afford them.
The 78-year-old rock star said he hoped others would follow his lead, calling the UK’s healthcare situation ‘ridiculous’.
Stewart said: “I would like to pay for 10 or 20 scans, or however much it takes.
“I don’t know how we’re (going to) work this out and, hopefully, some other people will follow, because it seems ridiculous that this particular scanning clinic was empty.
“There are people dying because they cannot get scans.
“I don’t need the publicity. I just want to do some good things and this, I think, it’s a good thing, because if other people follow me, I’d love it.”
He also called for a change in government. ‘I personally have been a Tory for a long time, and I think this government should stand down now,’ he said.
Now Leveling up Secretary Michael Gove had a message for Rod Stewart, and others who feel the same way as the legendary singer, but as Peter Stefanovic said: “It was of course complete boll****”
