Answer by Desmond Last:
Theresa May is totally and completely to blame for what has happened to the Computer systems of the NHS. May was the Home Office Secretary for 6 years before becoming Prime Minister. May cut Police resources because crime was going down- absolute rubbish.
How on earth can crime go down when every year May has allowed 300,000 new citizens to come to the U.K. Are they all saints?
There is absolutely no excuse for the cyber carnage that the irresponsible actions of May have allowed to wreck the NHS systems.
May as Home Office Minister did not produce the first major report on Cyber-crime through the NCA until 2015.
Either May does not understand computer systems or May is prepared to ignore the advice of ‘experts’.
As for Jeremy Hunt the NHS Minister he should resign today or be sacked.
All the NHS had to do was upgrade its Operating Systems and install an automatically updating anti-virus protection system.
Why on earth would you wake-up everyday as the U.K Government have knowing you are putting patients at risk with an out of date system?
May is a liability. Why? Because May will not listen and has no new ideas.
Additionally I and many others have been warning May that U.K based cyber-crime is out of control. When will May ensure that the U.K Police and Security Services enforce the Law? After people die?
I find it unbelievable that a Government who is prepared to spend money on its military to be involved in regional conflicts to which we make no appreciable difference and who are willing to give money to ‘corrupt governments ’ will not instead spend the money on the people of the United Kingdom.
The People of the United Kingdom have now experienced first-hand the continual mis-managent of the NHS and the U.K economy by a Government who so obliviously ‘do not have a clue’.
May needs to step out of Alice in Wonderland and enter the real world where the Doctors and Nurses of the United Kingdom ‘have had enough’.
How this will affect the Election will depend on how much ‘new spin’ May can put on her failure to act in the best interests of the people of the United Kingdom.
