Look how far we've come....

One of Labour's greatest achievements has been the investment in the NHS that has delivered a real saving - lives.

Hat tip to Bob Piper for this little gem of a website, reminding us of how things used to be.

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.

Remember that.

Gilbertstone and Cottesbrook were rebuilt previously. Labour do not have a monopoly on rebuilds.
