Please, the Conservatives are NOT attacking the NHS

There is a right little stir going on in the media today about NHS reforms.

It seems Nick Clegg has changed his mind.

He was for the health reforms.

Now he is against them.

They will try to shred him to bits over this.

Dr Zorro has an interesting take on the matter.

“He could be criticised for being vacillating, opportunist and lacking in integrity I suppose, but on the other hand he is responding to the electorate, so you could say this is democracy in action.”

Here is an interiew with Nick Robinson, John Redwood and Norman Lamb on this morning’s “Today” Programme.

ALL OF US LOVE THE NHS

John Redwood, says he “resents” the idea that health reform is being seen as a Conservative attack on the NHS.

The Witch Doctor agrees with this. All three major political parties are dancing to the tune of “lets bring in the private sector / charities / Uncle Tom Cobly to run the NHS”

And the music has been playing for years.

Nick Clegg’s problems need to be disconnected from the reforms. The problems with the reforms are much bigger than Nick Clegg.

I hope they don’t muddy the waters as they savage him, My Black Cat!

  1. You are right.

    If it weren’t for the ghastly new labour Government preparing the way, then we would not be at this crisis.

    A pox on all their houses (and second houses)

  2. John Redwood is not as astute a politician as I thought if he does not realise that the Conservatives are inherently more vulnerable on the NHS than the Liberal Democrats. Their policies might be essentially the same but all parties have kept their intentions for the NHS so under wraps that the public is not really aware that all three parties essentially want the same end for the NHS. Consequently, when it comes to preserving the NHS, the man in the street sees the Lib Dems as being more sympathetic.

    Even Simon Hughes, who was at school with Dr Grumble, plainly has no idea of how far privatisation of the NHS has already gone and either doesn’t seem to be aware of the policies of his own party or is trying to row back from them

  3. Of course, as JD says, New Labour started us down this inexorable pathway to the break-up of the NHS as we know it. My colleague, Professor Parrot, always said that the Conservatives would never have been able to get away with what New Labour did to the health service.

    The problem Cameron now faces is that his party is not trusted with the NHS. It has never been the party of the NHS and quite probably it never will be. That’s the political reality. It is not something that can be changed.
