    Schools are now teaching children songs so they can urge their parents to avoid A&E for minor injuries - it could save millions.

    It's an example to us all of how the state can use propaganda for the greater good of society ... and the Telegraph aren't putting a negative spin on it.

    I do agree the message needs to be hammered out, but sadly I don't think this is the most effective way to do it. How many parents listen to their kids for
    advice on this- certainly I'd have struggled to get my parents to listen.

    This is not propaganda. This is teaching children the correct medical advice, so that they follow it in the future.
