Apologies for the scary photo, but I wanted to illustrate that CaMORON is really Thatcher in disguise and whilst in real life (unlike this photo) he may not look like her, he IS expanding on the policies she conceived in the ’80’s.
Selling off the family silver, privatisation of the public sector and dismantling the NHS and Welfare state.
At the moment, the public feel disenfranchised with politicians because those politicians are not listening to them.
People want the main stream parties to understand how they feel, but none of these parties seem to have their finger on the pulse.
So what can people do?
Well it seems as if people think Ukip might be the answer.
Here is an extract from their manifesto regarding the NHS (Emphasis in bold type is mine)
Encourage County Health Boards to put out to tender key NHS services ranging from Long Term Care to local hospitals and GP surgeries. This will be done by franchising key services – run on a fixed budget – to charitable associations, not-for-profit and profit-making private companies, partnerships and individuals. This will bring in private sector efficiency and innovation, while fixed assets, responsibility and direction remain firmly in public hands
So, just like the tories, UKIP want to privatise the NHS.
Just like the tories, UKIP think that Public Sector =BAD; Private Sector = GOOD.
Well unlike Milliband, Farage and Cameron, I have worked in the NHS, the private sector and the public sector.
I cannot emphasise this enough … the private sector are only interested in making a PROFIT!!!! and they don’t care if they use taxpayers money to do it.
So what can you do to let politicians know what you want before May 2015 and beyond.
Don’t give them a minutes peace … e mail them, send them tweets, post on their facebook page, campaign, protest, engage them in conversation when they turn up on your doorstep touting for votes, attend their MP surgeries. Let them know what you want.

Because whatever the outcome in May 2015, if you do nothing … that is very well what you may end up with.
