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 David Cameron

Dear David,

13 August 2009

Thank you for your e-mail

I am worried by My Beautiful American Niece, because she tells me she likes the O’Reilly Factor on Rupert Murdoch’s Pox News.

Yes its hard to believe, but I think it may be because she is attached to the name O’Reilly, having a handsome boyfriend with a similar name.

It is surely not the O’Reilly sex appeal emanating from Pox TV that has bewitched My Beautiful American Niece, with his xenophobic rants undermining the NHS.

If so, David Cameron has an outside chance of being elected, but I would caution you to be wise, and not to count on that.

It should concern you that one of your colleagues Daniel Hannan has failed to transmit your message to the American public including My Beautiful American Niece, by way of his recent appearances on Pox TV.

Since you represent the new right wing in the UK, My Beautiful American Niece will assume from your comments that your party fully supports the NHS.

So here is my question. Do you support the NHS because focus groups have determined that the NHS is overwhelmingly treasured by the people of the UK and you want to be popular with the electorate, or because the American model is so flawed?

Glad you had a nice holiday. Have you seen Witney from you private jet?

Your very best friend, Leslie.

Who To Blame 24 January 2009

Dear Leslie,

13 August 2009

I've been enjoying the sun and touring my beautiful constituency of Witney today. But it goes without saying that just because I and most other politicians are not in Westminster at the moment, politics isn't somehow put on hold.

People still care about the issues they care about, and thanks to the internet they can voice their concerns whenever they want. Just look at all the support which the NHS has received on Twitter over the last couple of days. It is a reminder - if one were needed - of how proud we in Britain are of the NHS.

Millions of people are grateful for the care they have received from the NHS - including my own family. One of the wonderful things about living in this country is that the moment you're injured or fall ill - no matter who you are, where you are from, or how much money you've got - you know that the NHS will look after you.

That's why we as a Party are so committed not just to the principles behind the NHS, but to doing all we can to improve the way it works in practice. So yes, we will spend more on the NHS, but we will also improve it so that it is more efficient and responsive to patients. People working on the frontline will actually be able get on with the job they signed up for, without getting tied up in a web of targets. And we will put more power in the hands of patients by giving them better information about the care they can expect to receive.

Underlying these reforms, and our whole approach to the NHS, will be one big ambition - that future generations will be even prouder of the NHS than we are today.

David Cameron
