Rufus Hound

Rufus HoundAccording to Wikipedia, I am a comedian, actor and presenter. Oh, and the winner of the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special. However, the thing I'm proudest of are my two kids. Their lives, the lives of their children, their grand-children and their great grand-children will most likely depend on one of the single greatest achievements of any civilisation - the NHS.

In 1948, Great Britain resolved that being broken wasn’t your fault. If bits of you got smashed off, started going wrong or gave up entirely, then a National Health Service would do it’s best to stick them back on, put them right or find you a new one. It essentially made being healthy a human right. We can’t let that creation die.

I really don’t want to be a politician, but none of the mainstream political parties are fighting to stop the dismantling and privatisation of our NHS. It’s up to us - all of us - to save it.
