Have you seen this pay award?

Am I imagining things? I was in a book shop in Princes Street this afternoon when I heard over the radio that the Government are going to give us nurses the full 2.5% pay raise in April, and not stage it as they said they were going to.
You can imagine how pleased I was, and I was looking forward to seeing the reaction on the news. Only trouble is, there's nothing I can find about it. Nothing on BBC news, Sky news, Google news, Yahoo news and even AOL news. Come on, this is major! This is Government climbdown in the face of possible militant action by nurses. But apart from that radio bulletin - silence. Not even a denial. It feels so weird. Does anyone out there know what's going on? Anyone?
