A rant

March 20, 2012

What a tragic day. In some ways I am glad my father died before he had to experience the destruction of the wonderful  health service he relied on so much, and to see the party he supported most of his adult life have a hand in this destruction.

Thousands and thousands of British people gave their lives to protect this country from fascism, and the deal was that the government would provide a better feature for all, the NHS being part of that.  It sickens me that the Conservative Party have, for want of a better word, shat all over the altruistic, lofty aims of Clement Atlee etc.  They have no scruples about looting and torching anything they want, yet have no qualms about sending working class  kids to jail for being by-standers in the summer riots.

It is just outrageous that the Conservative Party have relentlessly, doggedly pursued this bill that serves no one other than private health care providers, and that was never in their party manifesto, and was opposed by most of the medical establishment from hospital cleaners to surgeons.  What the fuck is the left going to do now?

    I agree with what you are saying Heather. However, I feel that the healthcare professionals and healthcare bodies stayed quiet for far too long re the new health bill and therefore are in part to be blamed as well. If they had shouted out in large numbers from the beginning then this may never have been pushed through!

    Take The Royal College of Physicians, they conducted a survey during an Extraordinary General Meeting on 27/02/2012 which led to the vast majority of those surveyed to oppose the bill. By this time hundreds of post had already disappeared from Primary Health Trusts.

    If I’m perfectly honest, I don’t think there is much difference between the parties. None of them can be trusted!
