Not safe in the hands of Tories?? The proof is in the pudding!!
Social Services – Crisis!
Mental Health Services – Crisis!
Care of the elderly – Crisis!
Nurses – Crisis!
GPs – Crisis!
Hospitals – Crisis!
A&E – Crisis!
Ambulance Service – first response by firemen without equipment! – Crisis!
School funding – Crisis!
Teachers – Crisis!
Councils – Crisis!
Crime – rising!
Policing – falling!
Armed Services – Cut to the bone!
Disadvantaged and disabled – blamed and impoverished!
Cut upon cut upon cut – expensive new systems, expensive and useless reforms, pay freezes, pension cuts, job losses, underfunding, change for the sake of change, no rational thinking, creeping privatisation …………. and a bunch of cynical ministers who are totally out of touch, out of their depth and applying large doses of dogma!
When it goes wrong they blame it on the staff or suggest even more expensive changes!
What public services need is proper funding, proper pay, decent conditions of service (including pensions), reasonable workloads, adequate equipment, recognition of the essential roles and hard work put in by staff and stability – above all stability!.
Expensive and stupid reorganisations are the last thing needed! They are a smokescreen to hide the real issues!
Safe in their hands? I don’t think so!
The issue is that the Tories are robbing money from public services to give tax cuts to the rich!
Surely our children, health, safety and old folk deserve better than this?
