    It's called a Conservative Government.

    The b*stards have been in power for 15 years and couldn't give a s**t about people like you Chalky.

    They are only interested in looking after themselves, defrauding the state and tax avoidance.

    Anyone who didn't vote at the General Election really shouldn't complain though.

    I donít think that politics (or the lack of interest in it) should come into it howoldboy,Iíve paid into the system for 40+ years so I have a right to see a doctor within 24 hrs in my eyes,do you think that Labour voters should get to the back of the queue behind the true blues?

    Tbh Iím quite proud of the fact that I have no interest in politics,I donít get drawn into arguments about it as I donít know one politican from another unless they are blatantly obvious

    I agree that politics shouldn't come into it Chalky. But the reality is that it does.

    If the Conservatives keep reducing NHS funding, with the ultimate objective being to reduce the amount of tax the wealthy pay and make everyone pay privately for health care, should we just collectively shrug our shoulders and accept it, even though many of us, like you, have paid National Insurance for 40 years.

    Should we all just bury our heads in the sand and say I have no interest in politics, they are all the same so f**k it I won't bother voting.

    Voting gives you the power to decide how the UK is run. The MPs you help to elect will be making decisions on issues that you care about, such as the NHS.

    An election is your chance to speak out if you have a complaint about the way the country is being run.

    If you donít vote, youíll have had no say over who will be making decisions on issues that are important to you.

    Over the years many campaigners have sacrificed their lives to win the right to vote. It is disrespectful to them to waste your vote.

    If you don't care about the state of the NHS, just continue the way you are and watch it disappear.

    If you do care, open your eyes and ears, start talking and listening to people who use, or work in, the NHS and ask them what they think about how it is being run.

    After listening, get off your arse and head to the Polling Station next chance you get.

    People like you can change things for the better, but only if you vote!

    I always vote and always have. I owe it to the sacrifices of previous generations to uphold democracy so I would feel I was letting them down if I didn’t exercise my democratic right.

    As for doctors, here in Gloucestershire you can wait up to a fortnight for an appointment though there is a triage system for very urgent cases. I can’t get an NHS dentist though, and we’ve had to join a waiting list just to get into the local private practice. In Cumbria we were on a list and got an NHS dentist after about two months. Great dentists in Wigton. Our last GP surgery had a call-back system for appointments and if they felt they needed to see me I was often asked “can you be here in half an hour”. If I said it wasn’t that urgent it would be about 5 days. God bless Cumbria.

    Iíve got no idea if what you say is true or just your political bias because all I could read was a party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party,Iím sure that if Frank had his say then he would give me equally strong reasons to vote for the Tories,surely itís yours and others fault in the elections when not enough people want the Labour Party in and vote Conservative instead
    Iím refusing to get into a debate on why I donít take part in something that I canít be bothered about,whenever I look on the news thereís always a politician mentioned at sometime whoís been looking after themselves and lining their pockets,it was a woman from the Labour Party a few days ago when I tuned in so itís just not the Conservatives who are crooked,Iím just going to leave it to everyone else whoís got an interest and let them argue amongst themselves

    The trouble is no matter who you vote for the government gets in

    What about this board then howoldboy,I donít support Carlisle and couldnít name a single player in the back four but I come on here because I like talking to you and griff,should I stick to just posting on Notts mad because I donít support Utd? Itís all about freedom to do what you want which Iíve got a right to do unless griff gets an itchy trigger finger

    Anyway I spent 20 years in the NHS albeit on the lower rung of the ladder but you do get to witness a hospital at work that patients and outsiders donít
