Why Do Patricia Hewitt and Rosie Winterton Lie to Us?

In 1998 Labour celebrated the 50th anniversary of the creation of the NHS, it was a cause for national celebration and tax rises for all.

Such was the importance of this date that in 1998 New Labour even minted a new commemorative 50 pence piece for us to keep and treasure.

So why are these two health ministers holding a cake celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the NHS 8 years later? The press release from last week accompanying this picture says “Rosie Winterton MP and Patricia Hewitt recently met in Westminster to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the NHS. ” If they lie at this meeting, what else will they lie about? Clearly you can’t believe a word they say.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
