A tribute the NHS deserves more than ever

I think now more than ever, we need reminding of this. With coronavirus rates surging and the pandemic as worrying as it ever has been, we need to cherish the National Health Service more than ever before. We are lucky to have it, and it’s probably the only thing which redeems the UK as a nation at the moment. I think it’s worth recalling that, back in 2012 with the eyes of the world on London, Danny Boyle chose to pay tribute to the NHS; it’s now clearer than ever how much it deserved that place in the Olympic Opening Ceremony. It’s inclusion there meant the NHS was rightly recognised as something we should all be proud of. We surely must express our thanks to an institution which guarantees us all free healthcare, no matter who we are or how much we earn. I also think it’s worth remembering that, according to this clip, the Tories wanted to cut that part of the ceremony, a desire which should damn them now more than ever.
