Save the NHS!
Let’s be quite clear. If the radical new government plans announced by Health Minister Andrew Lansley (above) today (details here and here) are carried out, it's goodbye to the NHS.
Do you want to see the privatisation of health care in Britain? No, me neither. But it's going to happen if we allow the neoliberals, who have always hated the very idea of socialised health care, get their way.
UPDATE: There's a great comment on the Mail website by 'ellie', which I think says it all:
If we can afford to bail out the sleazebag bankers with billions, we can afford to fund the NHS. The Tories are choosing their rich friends and private companies ahead of the welfare of the rest of us, just as they always have. This is what you get when you vote in a cabinet full of millionaires backed up by their lapdog LibDem colleagues. I bet even more people are rueing the day they voted Lib Dem.
