The NHS is the people’s property: it’s for the people, run by the people. Nowadays though it has become a political football (which isn’t the good type of football). Time is marching on and the Tories are dismantling things, and privatisation is very much at the fore.

“I ended up reconnecting with her on Facebook,” Loeber explains. “And it was then that I found out that she had transitioned from Robert to Lorelei.”
“At the time, I was shooting a nude series, so I asked her if she would be interested in posing for that. Considering we hadn’t spoken in 20 years, I expected her to be … Read the rest
