Eek, George Orwell fans will be enjoying themselves!!
The government continues to repeat its Big Lie.
Simon Burns, one of the government health ministers, continues to state that we must have NHS revolution due to the UK’s supposed poor quality of cancer care (Check out his letter in the Guardian, 9 March 2011).
As we at the Big Society have pointed out in the same newspaper’s letters pages, cancer survival rates continue to increase year-on-year, as the minister should by now realise!
With more and more backbench coalition members standing up to the Lib Dem high command, and the Lib Dem conference this weekend, Simon Burns should be worried.
These reforms desperately need radical adjustment in order to gain crucial widespread support.
