The biggest disaster in the history of the UK NHS.
Over 5000 human beings were infected with blood born viruses as a result of dirty NHS treatment and a government that were more concerned with saving money, than saving lives, and to date, nothing has changed.
As a result of this disaster over 2000 human beings are now dead and many more face the same end.
Successive governments, including the present one has done nothing to end the suffering, pain and uncertainty the victims and families of this mass infection have to live with every day.
David Cameron could if he wished bring closure to this 25 year fight and allow those that are still with us a chance to live what is left of their lives with perhaps a little dignity and security.
DAVID CAMERON has chosen to continue to hide the truth about how this tragedy was allowed to happen, DAVID CAMERON, refuses a public inquiry into the deaths of more than 2000 human beings. DAVID CAMERON has offered nothing, or very little to those that have been left to an uncertain future living wit these KILLER VIRUSES,
DAVID CAERON SHOD HANG HIS HEAD IN SHAME.
