Psst: Pass it on...

"Be not selfish in your doings:
Pass it on. (Pass it on, children)
Help your brothers (help them) in their needs:
Pass it on."

Not All Twitterers Are Twits

The IT Crowd creator twits to "help stop rightwingers in the US slagging off the NHS":
The campaign has drawn acknowledgement from Gordon Brown, who tweeted that the "NHS often makes the difference between pain and comfort, despair and hope, life and death", his wife Sarah Brown, and a host of comedians including Stephen Fry and Dara O'Briain.

But the most heartwarming messages of support - posted with the #welovetheNHS hashtag that allows the website to group the posts together - have come from members of the general public.

Bigtitch wrote: "Neighbour - got cancer - radiotherapy, home visits, nurses, dietitians, physios - 3 years later still alive and not bankrupt" while Harriet Crosse posted: "Scary operation in middle of dissertation year at uni. Away from home/family. Nurses amazing. So kind. I’ll never forget". Yorkshire Len’s experience of the service was simply: "Time from mother being diagnosed with breast cancer to successful removal of tumour - 5 days."
Definitely delightful Graham. Well done.

Shorter Katy Abrams: "War is okay 'cause, you know, it's been going on like, forever. But ooh, it just makes me hoppin' mad to think that our government might actually spend money on healing people rather than killing them. Oh and Socialism! Communism!"

Quote of the Summer:

"Most presidents, you always look at it and you say like 'Oh, they've lost the trust of the American people, the American people are disappointed.' This seems like one of the first presidents that actually, uh, uh, our approval ratings in his eyes could go down very far."
