UK General Election 2017

I am happy to announce that Theresa May – Britain’s worst Prime Minister to date – has blown her majority. Her gamble – that the electorate would give her a bigger majority on the back of our desire for Brexit, has backfired. In fact I suspect that was the plan all along. Why do I say that? British Armed Forces continue to be more and more closely integrated into Europe, despite Article 50 having been triggered. Those in the know suspected that she had no intention of us leaving the EU – perhaps they were right. For me, knowing the manifesto commitments of both Conservative and Labour parties, I am glad neither has power. Watch out for another election (or a coalition) very shortly!

For many who voted for Corbyn – a true Socialist (Marxist!) if ever there was one – the most painful issue of the greatest concern was the state of our health service.

The NHS has been funded ‘at record levels’ according to the conservatives, while in real terms it’s receiving less than a third of the funding per person than it was in the 1970s. Out of that also comes payments for privately built PPI hospitals, which have turned out to be a massive cash-cow for those who built them, and leased them to the state. I have heard of hospitals being forced to pay over £600 to get a lightbulb changed! It’s in the contract!

So why do I mention the NHS? Because I want you to listen to this interview that Brian Gerrish has done with a whistleblower on how the NHS is killing our elderly. I’ve written before about the Liverpool ‘Care’ Pathway (which was supposedly banned). No, it still continues, and patients are dying under very worrying conditions. This interview will leave you with more questions than answers – is funding the real issue? Does the NHS need an injection of cash, or compassion? Where is the care for the sick and elderly.

Please listen and share with everyone you know – particularly if they are in the UK. We have bigger problems than just who is in charge, or how much tax we pay – we have a crisis of CARE – which must, surely, be a spiritual problem.

God Bless you
