Do you remember a few years ago when David Cameron, trying to claim to be the heir to Blair, decided to ape TB’s famous ‘priorities’ line? Tony had said that his three priorities would be

education, education, education.

He said it to rapturous applause and went on to create the biggest school-building programme ever as well as recruiting more teachers, classroom assistants, and support staff to make those buildings work. It was a pretty good move, all in all.

Cameron’s follow up in 2006, which he obviously thought very clever, was to claim that his three priorities would be

N… H… S…

He said it to rapturous applause and went on to create a bloody mess. Cutting nurses, support staff, and building programmes. Indeed, closing entire hospitals in some parts of the country. It was a pretty terrible move, all in all.

Well now, after pausing to listen, Cameron is back trying to sell his reforms to the National Health Service. Today, he went to visit a hospital along with his man-servant human shield deputy, Nick Clegg. After getting onto a ward in the hospital to show how caring and thoughtful they both were, a doctor found them and the following press pack and went off it. Luckily for us, there’s video evidence. Watch Cameron’s face and decide just how much of an heir to Blair he is (hint: not a lot).
