"Well where’s our bloody revolution? Seriously? The public reaction to the current dismantling of the NHS by the Conservatives has been, quite frankly, pathetic. Some people blame the media for the lack of coverage, but honestly I don’t buy that anymore. If there was a media blackout on the FA Cup, people would still find out the football results if they were interested; how can football be more interesting than your own health? There are even people working for the NHS who either don’t know or don’t care about the current threat to their employer; I know because I’ve spoken to them. I’ve had plenty of people ask me why I get so upset about this, and why I bother reading and writing about it. Well, I don’t know about you, but if I broke my arm tomorrow I couldn’t afford the bus fare to hospital, let alone the treatment." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
Apathetic nation is apathetic about an increasing number of things these days. - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
I feel the same way about the States. Yet I am convinced there is a level to which even our apathetic populace could fall where the crumbs they get aren't enough, the propaganda isn't enough to keep them passive, and they feel they have nothing left to lose. I'm afraid that it will be much more disruptive than mere picketing when that happens. - Spidra Webster
