The NHS is in a deep crisis, marked by obscene waiting times, overcrowded facilities and rural communities deprived of emergency services. Both the Tories and Labour talk of "radical reform" to the healthcare system; a dogwhistle for further privatisation if there ever was one, threatening to destroy one of the greatest victories achieved by the working class in the UK. What has led to this point, and how can we mount a fightback to save our beloved healthcare system?
Under capitalism, this neglect of working-class needs should not be surprising. The fact is that, while the housing crisis has an enormous human cost, it is extremely profitable for the rich landlords and speculators.
