Healthcare – a totem for others worries?

Reflect No Comments

Over the last couple of years we have had some particularly prominent news cycles:

–          the personal (Jade, Jordan and The Wedding)

–          the political (banks/bonuses, student loans, the truth on climate)

In some ways, these are possibly inflated in prominence by surrounding fears – of recession, personal futures, etc.lansley bill poster

Now there is a story that is both personal and political: the NHS and Andrew Lansley have become top news.

This rap has gone viral.

This leaflet was being circulated at a school fundraiser last week.

And now ‘The Pause’ in the health reforms.

Are the NHS changes emblematic of other concerns – a Totem to project wider worries onto?
