Socialism Vs Social Responsibility

Conservative Policy Group proposals for the NHSLet those who claim that all political parties are the same and it makes no difference who we vote for make an appointment with their local GP and ask what they think.

Last week, health secretary Patricia Hewitt claimed that handing over the NHS to an independent board would turn the health service into a "1960s nationalised industry." Today, the Conservatives pledge to hand day-to-day control of the NHS to an independent board, devolving power from Whitehall to the doctors, nurses and other professionals running Britain's front line NHS services.

Who says the ideological battle with socialism is a thing of the past? The case for social responsibility as an alternative to state control has only just begun!
