In a speech to parliament the Labour MP referenced protests this weekend that saw thousands of Brits take to the street in protest of a health system that is crumbling at the seams.
He said: “The NHS model isn’t broke, but it does need more funding”.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
