£100 Billion p.a. Organisation Fails To Kill Everyone

Unbiased as ever, the BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show opened with this item:
The Patients Association has uncovered "appalling" cases of poor hospital care. But did you want to sing the praises of the NHS after your operation?
Yes, with only £100 billion a year and 1.3 million staff, the NHS manages to treat the odd person successfully. I take it all back! It's a finely-honed machine!

Now for Stage 2: counting up all those times when the BBC has reported on cases of alleged police brutality by asking people to 'sing the praises' of their local police.
