This kind of ideology insults fairness and compassion and suspect many have no feeling for the NHS. I have no doubt they enjoy private health care. You call for persuasion but I fear these people will never change until they shuffle off.I think we, the left, need to get away from insulting tory ideology. It doesn't sit well with me but it is a valid political viewpoint.
People have to be persuaded that there is a better way that benefits us all, our children and grandchildren.
I b loody well hope so...Responding to the policy projects favoured by the membership rather than electorate never ends well at a General Election, see Jeremy Corbyn. I suspect a lot of this grandstanding about who is the 'most conservative' is to be elected leader and will be ditched when the have to go to a wider electorate.
