This text was written by the other Graham in Defend Our NHS York in a hurry this morning. Its excellent, so I’m sharing it here. So, to the tune of ‘When I’m 64’…

Happy sixty-third birthday, NHS
(with apologies to John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Now that you’re older, feeling the strain,
It’s time to look ahead.
We shall still be bringing you our aches and pains –
Influenza, rheumatism, cancers and sprains.
If we need treatment, will you be there
Even if we’re poor?
We still want to use you,
We don’t want to lose you
When you’re sixty-four.

We’ll be older too…

Changing just like you…

There are lots of fat cats looking for loot,
Think you’re up for grabs,
Think they’ve got the government to do as they ask,
Eyeing up those bed-loads of cash.
If we need treatment, will you be there,
Even if we’re poor?
They want to make their profit –
Not if we can stop it –
When you’re sixty four…
Encore –
We still want you handy,
Free of Andrew Lansley,
Now and evermore!
