Last Thursday the Tory party pulled off a shock election victory. Like the rest of the world, including their own supporters, I was shocked that of the 66% of the electorate that voted there were enough blue supporters to give Cameron a vote of confidence (I’m also ashamed that a third of the electorate didn’t even bother to vote, but that’s another story).
The Tory victory confounded the polls.
By coincidence Guy Carawan, the composer of We shall Overcome, the greatest ever protest song, died 5 days earlier, aged 87.
It’s a song that’s been embraced by many humanitarian causes, and should be the anthem for those who despise Tory values of not caring for the deprived, the sick, or the persecuted, but care only for them selves. It’s the anthem of unselfishness.
In the operating theatre right now is the fate of the NHS, created in the aftermath of WW2, much of it because of the passion of Aneurin “Nye” Bevan, against many in the doctor’s trade union, the BMA.
Look at my earlier blog to see the selfish fight of many doctors with a government determined to socialise medicine.
The delicate operation in the operating theatre that Cameron is planning is designed to gIve more to the richest 1,000 in the country.
The bottom eaters.
Those who make money out of having money.
How the Tories convinced the electorate is beyond me.
But we’ll be back. And at the end of the day we will overcome.
Lies and selfishness may convince all of the people, some of the time, but not all of the time.
