    Any such film could have been made and be applicable in any past governments. Nothing new under the sun.

    Yes indeed, death under the Tories. Camoron constantly lies "With the Conservatives there will be no more of the tiresome, meddlesome, top-down re-structures that have dominated the last decade of the NHS." The coalition government went on to make some of the biggest changes to the NHS since its creation. "We have absolutely no plans to raise VAT. Our first Budget is all about recognising we need to get spending under control rather than putting up tax." George Osborne rose VAT from 17.5% to a record 20%. "Yes, we back Sure Start. It's a disgrace that Gordon Brown has been trying to frighten people about this. He's the prime minister of this country but he's been scaring people about something that really matters." Hundreds of Sure Start centres have since closed their doors. "When you're taking the country through difficult times and difficult decisions you've got to take the country with you. That means permanently trying to make the argument that what you're doing is fair and seen to be fair." Tax cuts for Millionaires whilst some of the poorest in society are struggling to make ends-meet due to welfare cuts and poverty wages. How is this "fair"? No point in making excuses for them (not) Young (not in) Cornwall

    Yes, it is well known that the Tories hate the NHS.

    Legacy of Margaret Thatcher's reign is thousands of 'unjust' deaths of Britons, says study http://tinyurl.com/nu9nkw3
