Just a quick one, I see Thanet Labour are having a whinge about who should run the NHS, I would like to point out that despite Labour's ancient history on setting up the NHS, in recent times things have not been so good during their time in office an 7 billion pound project was set up to handle patient information in 2002 by Labour, which the Daily Mail recently reported " National Audit Office concludes that the £2.7 billion so far spent creating a database of medical records had not been “value for money”.It said it had no confidence that the £4.3 billion which will be invested over the next few years will be “any different.”
The truth is Labour trades on nostalgia, the fact is under Labour in recent times whatever improvements Labour made historically have been eroded by a cynical agenda which has involved undermining, ordinary working people, allowing migrants to be exploited as cheap Labour ,to the point that any improvements on infrastructure such as health and education have been eroded by increased demand.
Admittedly Cameron does not inspire confidence in the health service but at least most know where he is coming from, its my view that Labour have hit on a formula of pleasing and spoon feeding the public sector workers and habitual welfare claimants (who are distinct from those unable to work or those replaced by exploited migrants).
Just locally we have seen how Labour have fought against social housing and now intend to fight inward investment at a time when the Pfizer are winding up operations, resulting in a bleak future for thousands in this area. It would be interesting to know given Clive Hart and his Labour colleagues objections to inward investment so far, what answers or strategies he or any of his colleagues might have for helping the thousands of us effected directly or indirectly by the Pfizer closure.
Still if you would like to wallow in nostalgia and Labour propaganda click here
