The World Health Organisation continued to mark the United Kingdom as red status for cases of The Sniffles, despite best efforts of pharmacists and alternative medicine.
The condition, also known as “feeling grotty”, “having a fuggy head” and “man flu” first came to prominence in the late 1980’s, as open-plan offices and closer working conditions caused an unprecedented outbreak of runny noses, sinus pressure and malaise at rates akin to the great 1917 influenza pandemic.

Responses from the media have been overwhelmingly positive, with Mr Hunt receiving lavish praise from many of the national newspapers. Despite the plaudits from many, some feel this work takes focus away from more pressing medical research. However, Mr. Hunt was quick to respond to these claims. “I assure all the detractors that this target will not affect any others that this government has in progress. We aim to strike many healthcare problems from the shores of this country – including bald spots and veruccas,“
