VE Day veterans abandoned to die of Covid-19

It feels as if VE Day veterans have been abandoned to die in care homes, because of 10 years of austerity cuts and privatisation.

They should be cared for in Rainbow/Nightingale or established hospitals. But they’re not because some temporary hospitals are still not ready and there are not the staff needed anyway.

We were totally unprepared because of a decade of profiteering and cuts.

A political choice.
