David Boyle sums up my thoughts on the NHS bill

In a superb article on Lib Dem Voice, David Boyle (a former editor of Liberal News), outlines why liberals should support the Health and Social Care Bill.

The fundamental problem with much of the party's thinking over the last 20 years has been a kneejerk support for producer interests and a failure to accept the state can be just as venal and incompetent as the private sector. Sadly it's the thinking that drives Liberal Left and much of the Social Liberal Forum's policy making.

What matters to liberals surely is the quality, efficiency and costs of public services - not who provides them?
