That NHS coffin photo . . . . .

Hi all

You might have noticed in recent updates that I am not very fond of the Tories. The clue might have been my poem “Dirty Little Tories”. That fact will always remain: I don’t like them. However, I don’t want to make this into a David Cameron hating website or blog (there are a million of them. Just type into Google: I hate David Cameron). To be honest, I am not a huge Labour fan, nor Lib Dems. In fact, I really don’t know what I describe myself as politically. Certainly on the left. Something collectively, but not communism exactly . . . .

I am going completely off the point. The other week, my friend Paul Curson showed me a picture on his phone. I thought it was funny but worryingly true. You know there is a touch of reality to it – it’s below. I have been looking for it on the internet for the past week and now I have finally found it on a Labour Party website – http://wyreforestlabour.wordpress.com/. My friend Hazel Mealy wanted to see it. I have included it below. I promise not to do too much Tory bashing (even though it’s so much fun), in case there are some avid Tory fans reading this blog. I don’t want this blog being side-tracked and too political. That’s not why I started it. I like to keep it on things about Honduras and street kids. However, after seeing the state of some of the public health care system in Honduras, where medicines aren’t always widely available because there are no funds (or the funds have been robbed), I do think the NHS is something that should be protected and cared for at all costs. Cutting services just isn’t on. We can’t have a privatised yank system. We just can’t. Use this as inspiration to look after the NHS. Do you really want those eejits smiling like that?

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
