Good instinct

Luke reports Hazel Blears, speaking at her CLP, as saying:

“We must make sure that our language, concerns and instincts are the same as people on the streets and estates. Vandalism, graffiti, noise, schools, the NHS, immigration."

It's a good point, and one I largely agree with.

Just one question. Who thinks that our government's current language, concerns and instincts on, say, the NHS are the same as people on the streets and estates? Seeing as how, um, Hazel Blears doesn't.

I'm a bit surprised she doesn't mention housing though, if she's going to talk about estates.

Perhaps it's a London thing, but the condition of social housing and unavailability of any affordable housing is the top issue whenever I canvass the big council estate in our ward.

The NHS is the one thing that could seriously lose us the next election. It needs sorting.

Adele (and others) What do you think about John McDonnell's call for a moratorium on all health service cuts while some proper investigation into need is carried out?

Not overly sure. Problem is that while its on hold trusts are getting further and further into the red and the problem escalates.
