The Operation was a Success, but the Patient is Dead

Actually, there is still a chance to save the NHS, if only we can find an effective Rebel Alliance to defend it.

Such an alliance probably won’t include many Liberal Democrat politicians, since members of that party in both the houses of Parliament have caved in to the Tories. The rank and file members, if there are any left, might join though.

There’s one last chance before rioting and civil disobedience become the only options. Lord David Owen tried, unsuccessfully, to delay the NHS Reform Bill until the publication of an internal assessment of the risks posed by the proposed reforms.

Now, Labour has been granted an emergency House of Commons debate on Tuesday.

I can only hope that debate is more successful than the Lords one. Maybe some LibDem MPs will grow a spine.
