Who will the Tories blame the NHS crisis on next? [POLL]

NHS May Hunt

So far this year, the Tories have blamed the NHS crisis on:

  1. Patients.
  2. Winter.
  3. Doctors.

And what do you notice about these three things? That’s right! They’ve all been constants throughout the NHS’s history.

The health service has always had patients. It’s always experienced winter. And it’s always been staffed by doctors. So blaming NHS failings on these three factors is like claiming you lost a tennis match because your opponent kept hitting balls at you with a racket.

The people managing the NHS haven’t been constant, though. And it seems that the current people managing it want to do everything in their power to make us forget that.

Who’s next?

The public isn’t buying the Tories’ current excuses, so who will they try to scapegoat next? Vote in the poll below, and let us know your suggestions on Facebook and Twitter.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
