  • Over 44,000 more doctors

  1. The list is so long; I’d put Pension Credits (that helped give my in-laws a better last few years of their lives) a bit higher on mine.

    It’s a shame that so many of our alleged supporters concentrate solely on the errors and omissions. The ungrateful left, why are their proverbial glasses perpetually half empty?

    Their logic seems to run something like “Labour isn’t perfect and sometimes has had to compromise – therefore it’s far better to let the Tories in. Then at least we can keep our fragile sensibilities unsullied by being a little too close for comfort to all the ghastly realities of practical politics”

  2. Hate to rain on your parade but I did a year as a trainee/student psychiatric nurse. Compare the NHS to the French medical version. UK 1 out of 10, France 9 out of 10.
