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

NHS May Hunt
John Shafthauer

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 ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
