Poor 'hardest hit' by swine flu

George Galloway MP says he represents the "hotspot" of swine flu across the UK, with as many as eight times the number of constituents making swine flu enquiries to their local GPs in Tower Hamlets compared with other parts of the country.

He says he is concerned about the "medically unqualified hysteria" drummed up by the media about swine flu and advises people who do not have underlying health problems to think twice before requesting Tamiflu.
