The embarrassing Olympic opening ceremony was watched by hundreds of millions of people with far better health systems than ours. Italy, as Tim Hedges recounts, just wipes the floor with the NHS. Why are we in denial?
Labour and the wider Left are constantly scaremongering that the Conservatives would wreck the NHS. That's just empty propaganda, which may explain why Miliband is making no capital out of it. If anything, the NHS is safer in Tory hands than Labour
The National Health Service is of vital importance to most Britons, and the Tories have much to offer. But Labour, while making it central to their campaign, appear to have nothing serious to offer, except the example of the NHS in Wales where Labour control has made matters worse
Why can't we have reason, not noise when people talk about Britain's NHS? Why can't we talk honestly about the fact that other civilised countries don't follow the bureaucratic NHS model, yet may even have better standards of healthcare?
Labour mistakenly believe the NHS is "their turf". But the polling shows they are vulnerable to the Conservatives on this issue in the run-up to May. Conservatives can and must also take UKIP on immigration to secure an outright majority, says Andrew Rosindell MP
Lies, damned lies, and statistics, and then Labour statistics! It's fine to highlight data that support your case, but on the NHS and the wider economy Labour is so desperate that they're just making the figures up as they go along. You can't trust Labour on the economy or the NHS
When Labour have a shadow health secretary with Andy Burnham’s credentials, it is hardly surprising that the latest ComRes poll shows that 22 percent of people say David Cameron is the party leader they most trust to manage the NHS, with Ed Miliband on 20 percent. Labour's lies aren't working
It has been a long standing feature of Labour failure not to understand that public services have to be paid for. If you bankrupt the wider economy you bankrupt the NHS. Cameron easily defeated Miliband today, and he should keep banging the same drum to election day
