is it too much to hope that New Labour MP's will press the Tories to tell the truth about their agenda for privatisation ? The NHS is more than just welfare,it symbolises solidarity,which all good [!] Tories and LibDems see as poison. Of course, the process of destruction is already far advanced, but we rarely find public exposure of the main, very active lobbyists and politicians who are currently attacking the NHS.
