Who will the Tories blame the NHS crisis on next? [POLL]
So far this year, the Tories have blamed the NHS crisis on:
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.
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 know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
