Faced with the imminent installation of either Johnson or Hunt as Tory leader & Prime Minister it is worth thinking about the fact that the more brexity Tory party members are more than prepared to see the sale & destruction of the NHS
But let's talk about the NHS.
We know (because he wrote a book about it) that Hunt wants to privatise the NHS. We know (because he finally admitted he deliberately lied) that Johnson will NOT be giving £350 million a week to fund the NHS.
Let's consider something else. Mine (I am in my 60s) may be the first generation where it is *not* the norm for parents to lose one or more of their children to what we now regard as preventable child diseases.
And yet for much of the world this is not true. For much of history it was not true for us either.
Think about the phrase "no parent should have to bury their child" and what that means.
No parent should have to bury their child.
It's free at point of use but of course it's not actually free. We pay for it throughout our working lives through National Insurance contributions.
Think about that too and what it might mean to you or someone you love.
I hope we never have to find out the hard way what we had if they get their way and we wake up too late to find our NHS is gone.
