harryslaststand.comHarry’s Last Stand, published next month, is 91-year-old Yorkshireman, RAF veteran and ex-carpet salesman Harry Leslie Smith’s unique perspective on NHS cutbacks, benefits policy, political corruption, food poverty, the cost of education – and much more.

From the deprivation of 1930s Barnsley and the terror of war to the creation of our welfare state, Harry has experienced how a great civilisation can rise from the rubble. But at the end of his life, he fears how easily it is being eroded.

Harry stands up for the welfare state, affordable education and the NHS. But what do you stand up for? Head over to harryslaststand.com to create your own unique image in the style of Harry’s cover and tell the world what #istandupfor.
