Conference, NHS and General Election
I am at conference which I am not a "live blogger" for and I will not necessarily blog as much from here.
One reason that I think Labour will not go for a snap election is that they will want, where possible, to get over the impact of Hospital Closures before going to the country.
The real problem with the issue of hospital closures is that it is the initial strategy decision that forces through the closure. It is, therefore, that point at which changes are needed.
To stop the closures there needs to be a concerted effort across the country with policy commitments from political parties. Merely having a few more Richard Taylors (much that Richard Taylor is a good MP) will not affect what the civil service do to the NHS.
