What is Britain without the NHS?

The electorate has decided that David Cameron, or at least the Tory party, will lead the country for the next 5 years. 
A massive majority, albeit only convincing less than a quarter of the electorate to endorse it.

My concern is for the future of the NHS.

Tories have never been the natural allies of socialised medicine. They argued against its formation after the end of WW2, and are the friends of Britain’s richest people (who can afford to pay for their own medical bills, and from whom it would require an unlikely generosity to finance medical bills on the basis of need).

The ballot box has therefore given the first blow to a health service available to everyone in the UK, regardless of wealth.

I remind you of the words of the founder of Aneurin Bevan, who when the NHS was launched in 1948 said as a result of such opposition that  “No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party…So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin. They condemned millions of first-class people to semi-starvation. Now the Tories are pouring out money in propaganda of all sorts and are hoping by this organised sustained mass suggestion to eradicate from our minds all memory of what we went through. But, I warn you young men and women, do not listen to what they are saying now. 
Do not listen to the seductions of Lord Woolton. He is a very good salesman. If you are selling shoddy stuff you have to be a good salesman. But I warn you they have not changed, or if they have they are slightly worse than they were.

Britain is nothing without the NHS
