Happy Burpday.

The United Kingdom’s National Health Service was launched seventy-four years ago tomorrow. Nearly three-quarters of a century of free-at-point-of-service healthcare. Which is something worth celebrating.

I have many reasons to be grateful to the NHS. But rather than talk about their excellent endeavours to fix things that had gone wrong, I decided to celebrate them with something that is pure right: the Halas & Batchelor public information film to explain the service to the nation.

Seventy-four years dedicated to the simple proposition that people who aren’t fabulously rich have the same right to be healthy. Deep Joy.

  1. It’ll take the dissolution of Capitalism for the States to enact such a thing. By then, I’m guessin’, there will no longer be “the States”. The Civil War never ended.
