BLOG: ONLY BOLD STEPS WILL SAVE FAILING HEALTH BOARD
Summer like no other
This has been a summer like no other in the world of politics.
We face a series of interlinked crises, from the cost of living to housing - with the expectation that many millions will fall into poverty and even destitution; the UK is facing a deep recession and inflation is running at the highest it has been in forty years; economically, the world looks at the UK as an emerging economy rather than a developed one; and a bloody war is being fought once again in Europe threatening to engulf us all in a nuclear catastrophe.
Whilst all this is going on, our focus has been diverted to what should be nothing more than a side show, an internal Conservative party election to select their new leader. The narcissists convention eventually selected the vacuous Liz Truss as the new UK Prime Minister, who will simply oversee a continuation of disastrous Conservative policies which have blighted so many lives over the past twelve years.
