New Labour’s 13-year binge on the public services driven by Gordon Brown without even a trace of quality control achieved little except the near bankruptcy of Britain. Our hospitals remain infection-ridden, their front-line staffs overworked, with patients, especially the elderly, so badly treated it has become an international disgrace. Our state primaries turn out illiterates, our state secondaries award qualifications so dire that the private sector is abandoning them, while 80% of our “universities” are a joke. Our pensions system is wretched, our infrastructure inadequate, our Armed Forces sabotaged by over-use and underfunding, and our police force demoralised. Who can look across this wasteland and seriously believe the narcissistic non-entities squabbling over the rotting carcass of the Labour Party could possibly have the solution.
