Nothing is really free in life
Labour spends lavishly on full page newspaper adverts promoting their ‘Free’ NHS, TV licence and bus passes (10/4/15). Nothing is ‘free’! In 1997 Labour famously promised not to raise Personal Taxes: they doubled their 10% base rate income tax (designed to help the poor) and raised National Insurance on poor workers by 10% to ‘save the (free) NHS’; yet they abhor funding through Health Insurance!

Do Leopards change their spots?
