70 Years On

It might have swung the Scottish independence referendum, it certainly swung the EU referendum, and it might yet swing a border poll in Northern Ireland. 

Today, the institution that people only fail to love if they just don't like Britain or the British celebrates its seventieth birthday with Services of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey and York Minster, with Royal Visits to Scotland and Wales, and with hundreds of events the length and breadth of the Kingdom.

Well, of course it does. This is our National Day, National Health Service Day, known colloquially as NHS Day. Or, at any rate, it ought to be, with Fifth of July firework displays and so on.

Who would dare seek to destroy the NHS, even by stealth as all three parties have attempted to do over the last 20 years, when its very existence was marked by a holiday every summer? Let's make that happen. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning.
