Broken promises. Democracy challenge

witchround

Don’t be diverted by todays news regarding Liam Fox’s best man, no matter how intriguing the relationship may be.

Don’t be diverted by the news suggesting that you might respond to the bribery nudge of having your funeral paid for by the NHS if you donate an organ.

There is something much more important going on.

You can watch the House of Lords debating the Health and Social Care Bill. They say it will go on till about 11.30 tonight and continue in the am.

HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE BILL – LORDS DEBATE

And while you watch consider this:

Re the NHS : have we been manipulated nudged by successive governments over many years?

Have these governments been honest with the people of this country over the proposed NHS changes?

How good has the judgement of our “leaders,” the politicians, been over the years?

How good is their judgement now?

If this Bill succeeds, are we living in a democratic country?

Do you care?

GUARDIAN : LORDS DEBATE ON NHS REFORMS 11 OCTOBER 2011

“The House of Lords is debating the government’s controversial health and social care bill. The debate is set to run until tomorrow, when peers will vote on an amendment from Lord Rea which would throw the bill out and an amendment from Lord Owen which would kick it into a select committee, perhaps resulting in the death of the bill. Owen said the NHS should not be opened up to “a pure market” because “health is not a public utility. Health is different” (see 2.07pm). No political party had seriously threatened the NHS – “until now”, Owen said (see 1.01pm). Rea said the plans had not been in either the Lib Dem or Tory manifestos, or the coalition agreement, so peers ought to oppose them (see 11.37am). For the government, Lord Howe defended the bill, saying it would “deliver for the long-term a sustainable NHS true to its founding principles” (see 11.32am).”
