Zitate Aneurin Bevan

„Why read the crystal when he can read the book?“

— Aneurin Bevan
Context: It has been suggested, I think by the hon. Member for East Aberdeenshire (Mr. Boothby) that the most constructive suggestion he could make was to urge an early General Election and a return of a Tory Government in Britain. Why on earth should he want to prophesy what might result from a Tory Government when history has the record for him? Why read the crystal when he can read the book? Hansard, House of Commons, 5th series, vol. 468, col. 319. Speech in the House of Commons, 29 September 1949.

„Although I am not myself a devotee of bigness for bigness sake, I would rather be kept alive in the efficient if cold altruism of a large hospital than expire in a gush of warm sympathy in a small one.“

„I stuffed their mouths with gold.“

Around 1948, Nye Bevan engineered a notorious "bribe" to win the support of hospital consultants. The father of the NHS made his famous declaration after he brokered a deal in which consultants were paid handsomely for their NHS work while allowing them to maintain private practices.

„The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it.“

— Aneurin Bevan
Frequently attributed to Bevan as his own words, and sometimes sourced to remarks to NHS patients in 1948 ( example http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/9106880/Read-this-and-prepare-to-fight-for-your-NHS.html), but believed to have been misattributed. This statement was not written down until the Television play about Bevan, 'Food for Ravens' by Trevor Griffiths. Griffiths himself attributes it to Bevan, saying "I have no written source for it, but old Bevanites in the coalfields were saying something like it during the strikes of the 80s and often quoting Nye as the source." ( The truth of Nye Bevan’s words on the NHS https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jun/02/the-truth-of-nye-bevans-words-on-the-nhs) In the script, a dying Bevan is asked by a young boy if he will be remembered for creating the NHS: Bevan: Maybe, if it lasts. Boy: (looking at press cuttings) Says here it will last forever. Bevan: No such thing as forever, boy. It will last only as long as there's folk with faith left to fight for it. Food for Ravens https://www.closeupfilmcentre.com/vertigo_magazine/volume-1-issue-8-summer-1998/food-for-ravens/ by Marc Karlin.

„What argument have they to persuade the young men to fight except merely in another squalid attempt to defend themselves against a redistribution of the international swag?“
