We all know the Conservative Party is busy de-funding the National Health Service, in order to stop it working properly and breed discontent. This will soften the public attitude to privatisation, even though it means most of us would not be able to afford private health.

But the polls say many of us will vote for the Tories regardless.

Why?

Are they blind to what’s happening already? Can’t they see that the Tories are deliberately harming the service we all receive, and then blaming its bosses rather than taking responsibility for their own political decisions? Look:

Anyone who blows the whistle on the Tories’ evil – yes, evil; people die because of these decisions – behaviour is penalised. Look at Dr Chris Day, who pointed out dangerous staff shortages caused by Tory polices at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, and subsequently lost the right to progress in his career. What a reward, just because he cared for patients’ interests!

Dr Day has since won the right to appeal against his treatment, with the hearing to include evidence from Health Education England on why he was punished for exposing a danger to patients. Read the story here.

The simple fact is, a vote for the Conservatives is a vote to kill your health service. And don’t delude yourself: A Tory, privatised health system won’t mean you’ll pay less tax – they’ve messed up the economy far too much for that. No – Theresa May plans to increase taxes – although her news media are euphemistically reporting it as failing to rule out such rises.

So when you go to vote on June 8 (or before, if you have a postal vote), think about all the times you’ve had to rely on your local GP, or had an appointment at a hospital for an operation. Maybe you’ve even had to rely on Accident and Emergency departments. Think of all the people whose lives have been saved because they didn’t have to pay a fortune before anybody would lift a finger.

Sue Jones knows all about that – and knows what she’ll do.

In the words of scripture, “Go thou and do likewise”.
