In response to The Conservative Woman: The NHS – another 70 years or a total rethink? You vote!, JohnB wrote:
If you try and have a serious discussion about the NHS, the pro-NHS leftie you’re arguing with will invariably try and paint you as being ‘evil’ and wanting to profit off the NHS or see people die. You are basically a heretic to them as ‘our NHS’ is their deity. It’s bizarre as I would never attribute their socialist leanings to be held for sinister purposes, why do they associate conservative ideas with being a bad person?
