I listened to Ed Milliband today on my radio and he is at last getting it right, his tone is not Tony B-liar anymore, (or he’s not sounding like he’s just been coached by him anymore) and that is no good thing, considering all his dodgy middle east messianic sounding twaddle, that will be seen for what it is,(twaddle, that makes more money for him) and coming out during the Election, can only hurt Labour and ED where it hurts most.
But it’s really great hearing that the dreadfully unfair Bedroom Tax will go ,and reminding the electorate of the profiteering going on in the Health service is a scandal, but it also must be said that they can only be getting this profit by cutting the wage bill of the people who are on the floor , like the nursing staff and the cleaners.
But I think more should be said of just what it is doing to the perception of why the British people are so proud of our NHS, and that it is there for us all equally , and placing into the minds of the British people the idea that we can look at how we care for our people matters more than in £’s and pence, rather than providing a great Health Service, Peopled by the funders and the users of that service… regardless of cost .
Cost must matter, but only in the sense that we get a better service for the money spent, and it mustn’t be at the cost to the value we place on providing that service… to us all .
The Line must be protected, and we must shout louder about how our NHS is not for sale, at any price, and that profit is a dirty word where our health is concerned, and we must be prouder of that Value, , and place a wide difference between the Labour Party,and the Tory Party, and not be frightened to say Profit is a dirty word, where the NHS is concerned…it is OK to say that Ed…please say it louder.
