    An excellent analysis from Lucy Reynolds, clarifying for me exactly where we stand on the privatisation timeline, why we need urgently need to unite now to resist the final 20% of the push towards taking us into the US healthcare model, and why we need decisively to turn our backs on the Labour Party who are actively pushing the privatisation model and form a viable alternative to stop this war on people from the profit mongers.
