This year’s rally was bigger than
usual with thousands of workers taking part from many different
unions, but there was a contradiction between some of the moderate
speeches of the leaders and the real problems faced by the workers
facing the onslaught of the bosses.
Like vultures waiting for an animal to
die before ripping it to pieces, private “investors” are watching
as Blair destroys the National Health Service preparing the ground
for more and more privatisation. The grandparents of today’s
British workers struggled for a fully funded free healthcare system.
Now we have to struggle to win it all back.
Tony Blair has been
pushing the line that the National Health Service has never had it so
good. He lives on another planet obviously. Anyone who uses the NHS
or works for it knows that a systematic attack on the very concept of
free healthcare is taking place.
