Normal service will be resumed shortly

You have to feel some sympathy for the right wing press, after the Red Cross said the NHS is facing a humanitarian crisis.

Firstly, people in this country like charity and charities and the Red Cross is one of the more established charities, which makes them harder to be attacked.

Secondly, people in this country are fond of the NHS, they like how we pay into it over our working life and it is free to use when we are ill. For this reason we are protective of the NHS, which makes it harder for it to be attacked.

Thirdly, the NHS is staffed by many non-British people, which doesn’t fit in with the right wing media’s rhetoric that all our woes are the result of immigrants.

You needn’t have too much sympathy, as I’m sure normal service will be resumed shortly and the immigrant bashing will continue as usual.
