Shame she spoilt it with the political point scoring though.

 

Quote

“Breast cancer has had so much investment that outcomes are really positive, but I know that other cancers have less funding for research and treatment and that access to such good cancer care isn’t the same all across the country.
 

“I feel pride that we are all working together for a Labour government that will change this. I will continue to work as much as I can. For those days when I can’t, the executive directors and my direct team will make sure everything carries on as usual.”

So if she wants to talk about the NHS under Labour (where it is in Wales):

Man who broke egg on Corbyns head gets 28 days in Jail

 

https://news.sky.com/story/brexit-supporter-who-egged-jeremy-corbyn-pleads-guilty-to-assault-11674799

 

They say Mr Corbyn was left with a red mark on his head after the vicious attack. Our jails will be even more over-flowing with this new law and order clampdown. Or possibly not.

I was once headbutted in Sheffield by a drunk, requiring stitches, he got £100 fine. Maybe if he'd cracked an egg on my head, he would have got a custodial sentence? Or possibly not.

Remember when egg man chucked a couple at Prescott, who immediately reverted to type and whacked him with a left hook or was it a right uppercut if I remember right. Prescott got away with a clean sheet, even though millions saw him whack someone. As always the rich and "famous" escape punishment.

The guy who egged Farage in 2014 got a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £200 costs

The guy who egged Prescott didn't face any charges.

 

 

Neither did Prescott who assaulted him on camera.

To be fair, those incidents were before we had an MP murdered for being insufficiently right wing....

 

I think Jo Cox has made people, and the courts, sharpen up a bit on being serious about assualt on public figures.

As well as the explosion in racial abuse, misogyny and death threats against public figures in real life and in social media.

I had a Tradesman call to give me a quote for some work, his name and number was given to me by a Forummer.  He came in the house, had 10 seconds surveying the job and then kicked off trying to spout the most vile rightwing racist rubbish Ive ever heard. I showed him the door quickly but he managed to slip a comment in about Jo Cox getting what she deserved before he left. The man is a complete lunatic.................and dangerous.
