Lying Tory Bastards.
Lies and Tories go together.
Despite David Cameron’s supposed cuddly image and fake concerns for non-old Etonians, his mates in the Tory Party gave away the game, the Observer has more:
“David Cameron was facing a battle to restore party unity behind his health policy last night after it emerged that several of his key shadow cabinet members put their names to a manifesto criticising the NHS and calling for it in effect to be dismantled.
The Observer can reveal that leading Tory MPs – who include Cameron’s close ally Michael Gove – are listed alongside controversial MEP Daniel Hannan as co-authors of a book, Direct Democracy, which says the NHS “fails to meet public expectations” and is “no longer relevant in the 21st century”.
Others listed as co-authors in the book, published shortly after the 2005 general election, include shadow cabinet members Greg Clark and Jeremy Hunt and frontbencher Robert Goodwill. Clark and Hunt were unavailable for comment last night.
Gove is also one of a group of more than 20 Tory MPs and MEPs who are cited as supporters of Hannan’s views in another book, The Plan: Twelve Months to Renew Britain, published in December last year, in which Hannan and Tory MP Douglas Carswell describe the NHS as “the national sickness service”.”
Cameron expects people to trust him with the NHS? Oh, yeah, look there’s a flying pig/Tory.
Update 1: Whilst on the topic of the NHS, I am indebted to captainjako for the link to This American’s Experience of Britain’s Healthcare System. It is rather good.
Update 2: John Gray’s “A day in the Life of Joe Middle Class Republican” is topical.
Update 3: Tendance Coatesy is good.
