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.
