Happy birthday NHS!

Anyone who has watched The Spirit of ’45 will know just how difficult it was for working class people to access decent health care before Clement Attlee’s Labour Government created the NHS. The Conservatives opposed its creation, have a nasty track record of under-funding it, and are trying to privatise it today.
I think the NHS is Britain’s greatest achievement of the twentieth century and I am very proud that it was Labour that gave birth to it. I am also proud to be able to celebrate it with colleagues.
Only Labour truly looks after the NHS. If you value it, vote for it.
