The Red Cross have announced that as things have got a bit easier in Syria recently, the more pressing global emergency is the United Kingdom’s NHS.

“There is a humanitarian crisis in NHS hospitals, especially in England,” said a Red Cross spokesperson.

“We are diverting staff and resources from Syria and the Yemen to help out.”

Prime Minister Theresa May was quoted as saying that while it may be true that patients were spending the night on trolleys in hospital corridors, they were “very comfortable trolleys”.

“We dispute the suggestion that there is a humanitarian crisis, and even if there is, it’s nothing to do with our budget cuts in the provision of social care,” continued May.

“If we can get voluntary organisations like the Red Cross to do the work for us, it’s a win-win.

“Furthermore, I would just like to say that Jeremy Hunt is doing a great job as Health Secretary.”
