    I managed to get as far as “Government fortunately is not Gaddafi-led and has not turned its guns on its own people. But by allowing – as a minimum – and, more accurately in my view, promoting inequality, it is just as certainly killing its own people.”

    At that point (as a medical specialist with a degree in public health) I’m afraid I gave up. I realise the professor is very distinguished in his field but this article is hard to take seriously. It’s also a little hard to see his point although I take it he wants rich people’s money to be given to the poor??

    Hi Recoboam
    if you haven’t already, you might like to take a look at Michael Marmot’s report, Fair Society Healthy Lives, which gives concrete recommendations for tackling inequalities (ie it’s about much more than the Robin Hood approach you mention): http://www.marmotreview.org/
