Blair Surrenders All That Is British

Article excerpt

Reading the report (Chronicle, October 1) headlined Blair Cheered on by Party Calls for Winning Speech", I wondered if these same MPs had read the report in a national newspaper in which a German lieutenant-general made it clear that he would command British troops.

This aid will come from a country almost on its knees, heavy industry destroyed, education and health care collapsing, over-populated but soon to be swamped by an avalanche of refugees from East European states being accepted into the EU, where pensioners pleading for more are being robbed by further tax increases by an uncharitable Chancellor, and the homeless are living in cardboard boxes.

It's a strange world. Dickens was right, as usual - charity begins at home.

The National Health Service will not improve until the doctors and politicians admit its weak points. …
