“Mr Cameron, keep your mitts off my NHS”

There was an inspirational speech at the Labour Party Conference today. Sadly the speaker wasn’t a Labour front-bencher however. It was 91 year old RAF veteran Harry Smith giving an emotional account of life growing up in Barnsley before the birth of the NHS, and urging us to be vigilant to prevent us from going backwards. Here’s the video of the speech:

Harry has also written a number of columns for the Guardian which you can read here. He has more common sense and decency than most of the House of Commons combined!
