With regard to Jean Calder's column "Goodbye and good riddance" (The Argus, May 5), I would like to say this article sums up perfectly how I feel about Tony Blair. Thank you, Jean!

It is written very well and covers most of the awful points. I can only add the memory of Tony Blair's indifference to the enormous turnout of people marching against going to war in Iraq - another indicator of his arrogance.

I worked in the NHS for ten years and feel very sad about the decline of standards and common sense there.

My boss waited a year to be treated for an extremely painful condition, and was then put off again until June.

He now has inoperable jaw cancer and has only received any treatment after a private consultation.

It is shameful that managers and private interests have infiltrated medical priorities.
