So after months of campaigning, and commentators pontificating about the implications of all the different coalition permutations, we have a majority government after all.

I like to think that one of the reasons we love the NHS is that the general population in the UK has a sense of fairness that is largely independent of where individuals stand on the political spectrum. We may argue about the finer details but the overwhelming majority of us agree that a healthcare system that is free at the point of need is fair.
