From Momentum:

A Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn will re-nationalise and restore our NHS, but it really is up to everyone to make sure there is an NHS left to restore. #OurNHS demo this Saturday marks the start of that movement.

Join the Momentum and Labour bloc:

So bring your friends and family to join Momentum, Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and many thousands of others to stand up for our NHS.

Nye Bevan famously said the NHS “will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it”. Now it’s time to fight.

    Well well, this from a Corbyn-bashing blog. But the left back him without qualifier when it suits them.

    The left have always said the NHS has been on the brink of closure for over 30 years. Before then, it actually was, as socialist Labour governments had no cash to fund it, cut doctors and nurses and services without further solution to embellish it. Corbyn will do absolutely no good at all. Especially when the NHS is already nationalised, something Corbyn knows. What else will he and a new ruling Left deceive on or bungle?

    This demo is one more case of leftists on the back foot. The country’s different to what it was in 1945, as even Labour MPs more recently saw when they knew it was time too subcontract services. They only bungled regulation of the service contracts.

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      Mick, the NHS is available to all. However the suppliers were never nationalised by Labour or the Tories. The privatisation of services is a red herring that allows politicians to debate when they are idle.
      If the NHS did not exist I sometimes wonder what would occupy the time of politicians. It is like a mutually agreed game they play.

  2. David Boothroyd said,

    Nye Bevan didn’t say the NHS “will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it”. It’s a line from Trevor Griffiths’s 1997 play ‘Food for Ravens’ about Bevan.
