A day in the forest

Posted on

It's school holidays.

And it was, for at least some of the day, spent with my sons in the forest - Forestry Commission forest.

The forest Cameron wanted to sell.

To deny ordinary people access to the most extraordinary countryside.

As he now wants to privatise health.

To deny ordinary people access to the most extraordinary healthcare.

We beat him on forests.

We need to beat him on the NHS.

And if, very soon, that means protests to show health professionals they have the support of ordinary people in opposing the destruction of our health service, so be it.

They do have that support.

They need to be empowered to 'just say no'.
