One of Labour's greatest achievements has been the investment in the NHS that has delivered a real saving - lives.
In another reminder, last Friday, I was fortunate to have a chat with Baroness Morris of Yardley, formerly the Member of Parliament for Birmingham Yardley prior to the spread of the reign of Hemming.
She spoke of a local school that she had visited during her first term as MP, where the water supply and foul waste pipes ran inside a corridor, where it got so cold in winter that these pipes froze and cracked.
Under Labour, that school has been rebuilt.
