The Sorry State of Debate

May 29th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized by

Today’s deeply upsetting statistics – you’re 44% more likely to die from an elective surgery on a Friday and 82% more likely to die from an elective surgery on the weekend.

Coupled with this unsettling article in the Speccie which, I’m sorry to say, directly corroborates some of the truly awful experiences with the NHS care of my elderly relatives.

And the cherry on the cake – Julie Bailey, a campaigner for the reform of the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust and founder of the ‘Cure the NHS’ group, has been subjected to startling bullying and abuse.

What a damning indication of the sorry state of debate, free speech and civil society in the UK. We’re not even fighting about which reforming action to take. We’re fighting for the right to have a debate in the first place and that shouldn’t be the battle in a ‘free’ country.
