The Greed party and their friends want to take this away from us. They want to cream off lucrative services as money-making presents for their fat cat friends and selves. They continue to subscribe to free market ideology in the face of 30 years of evidence to the effect that unregulated markets solve nothing, create, sustain and increase inequality and destory lives, societies, cultures and economies. The majority of the population of the UK is opposed to this policy of privatisation for its own sake (and to line the pockets of the wealthy even further).
I'm proud of the NHS. I'm proud to live in a country that created it. (There are many things about the UK of which I am not proud at all. But I am proud of this one thing.) I support the NHS wholeheartedly.
We need to keep fighting for it. We need to do our best to ensure it's there to help, to support and to save those who come after us.
