Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Dear NHS

Dear David,

4 January 2010

I am back from the Christmas period refreshed for the year ahead.

So glad you have put it all behind you and moved on from those dark negative days about the NHS.

The start of a new year, and a new decade, comes with a sense of hope for the future and in 2010, we can do more than just hope, and I am sure you would agree with that..

With the general election less than 150 days away, I am impressed by the launch of your  campaign on health care and the way you have confronted and indeed insulted historic labour values, and at the same time adopted the hallowed letters, NHS.

It would also help your cause if you would recant for ever and abandon Thatcher’s selfish Tory mantra, and endorsement of Private Health care that gave her, “What I want and when I want it”, and screw everyone else. No wonder she became so popular in America, where Republicans and Fox TV are still saying the very same thing, almost every hour.

Thank you for abandoning Thatcher and confronting the Republicans in America and defending cuts to the NHS.

I am sure you will find a way of avoiding, and at the same time adhering to, the strict Tory commitment of cutting taxes.

Labour Cuts to the NHS: Yes, you are against that, but also against Labour overspending.

Most Tories (except Margaret-what-I-want-when-I-want-it-Thatcher) use the NHS at some point - and even when we're fit and healthy, it's a great reassurance to know it's there to keep the poor at bay.

Health care effects everyone, and there is no place for market forces in health care. Market forces corrupt Heath Care if nothing else. Equitable health care transcends market forces and is in fact a mark of civilisation.

God bless your blessed endorsement of the NHS. And your firm rejection of Margaret T, who would not be seen dead in a NHS hospital.

How is Margaret?  As far as I know she is not yet dead.......

What an awful cow.

Your very best friend, Leslie.

Dear Leslie,

4 January 2010

I hope you've come back from the Christmas period refreshed for the year ahead.

The start of a new year, not least a new decade, always comes with a sense of hope for the future. But in 2010, we can do more than just hope.

The general election is now less than 150 days away, and it really can't come soon enough. That's why we've kick-started our campaign for the election today with a nationwide campaign on healthcare.

It was over three years ago when I spelled out my priorities in three letters - NHS. Since then, we've fought hard to protect the values the NHS stands for, and campaigned to defend it from Labour's cuts and reorganisations.

Most of us use the NHS at some point - and even when we're fit and healthy it's a great reassurance to know it's there. So because healthcare affects everyone, I want everyone to join in the debate on it.

If you go to the Draft Manifesto page on our website you can have a look at the policies we're proposing on healthcare, and then ask me a question about them. Everyone will be able to vote on their favourite questions over the next few days, and then on Friday I'll answer the ones that you care about the most.

For the NHS, and for our country, let's make 2010 the year for change
