We Have No Healthcare

I just don't understand how we're not protesting on a large scale here at the moment. Even for the usually-apathetic UK population this is surprising. I think a lot of people buy into the talk of protest having been made illegal last year, and just going along with that as something that's happened now, another … Continue reading We Have No Healthcare
