The Conservative government must think we’re stupid. Look at the state of this:

The government has pledged billions for hospital projects across England, at the start of the Conservative party conference.

The plans include a £2.7bn investment for six hospitals over five years.

A new approach to NHS mental health treatment will also be trialled in 12 areas of England – with housing and job support alongside psychological help.

Under plans drawn up by Health Secretary Matt Hancock, the government has said £13bn will be spent on hospital projects, including entirely new buildings or revamping existing structures to improve facilities.

The same pot of money will also be used to develop plans for further projects in the future.

Mr Hancock said the funding would come from taxpayers

There is no detail to this because it is a Tory promise, made ahead of an expected general election before Christmas; I doubt they have any intention of actually carrying out this promise.

Tories lie. Only yesterday we heard that a Conservative minister had told that party’s conference that they created the National Health Service.

In fact, they tried to prevent its creation, claiming that it “discourages voluntary effort and association; mutilates the structure of local governent; dangerously increases Ministerial power and patronage; appropriates trust funds and benefactions in contempt of the wishes of donors and subscribers; and undermines the freedom and independence of the medical profession to the detriment of the nation”.

Even that was a lie. Healthcare before the NHS was a nightmare for working people. Read the books of Harry Leslie Smith for information on the way a private health system fails to work. That was a hindrance to the nation.

Labour will put real investment into the NHS, and will remove the cancer of privatisation that was injected into it by the Conservatives and has been growing ever since, rotting the service from the inside.

Doesn’t the Labour promise seem more wholesome to you?
