to privatise the NHS and keep the railways privatised, all at our expense and with no risk to them
Who wants to privatise the NHS?
· Initially, the NHS budget will be given to companies like Virgin to run the current NHS services, but less efficiently, with taxpayers’ money going to Virgin’s shareholders.
· But being paid by the taxpayer to provide “free” NHS services won’t be enough for them for long.
· Once the Tories have finished off the NHS, Virgin and similar corporations will be running all the hospitals and healthcare facilities and will charge us to use them.
· The Tories have always hated the NHS, never wanted it in the first place and have been planning to get rid of it for decades.
· As Tory former Prime Minster, John Major said to Andrew Marr on the BBC (see the video for yourself in this report)
“The concept that the people running the Brexit campaign would care for the National Health Service is a rather odd one. I seem to remember Michael Gove wanting to privatise it. Boris wanted to charge people for using it. And Iain Duncan Smith wanted a social insurance system. The NHS is about as safe with them as a pet hamster would be with a hungry python.”
· The LibDems, instead of being a moderating influence in the coalition government, voted for the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, which effectively abolished the NHS.
· The LibDems did not have to do this. The Act was not in any party’s manifesto in 2010. The Tories couldn’t have got it through without their support.
The New Labour/Blairite MPs who want to get rid of Corbyn
· New Labour set up the inefficient internal market in the NHS that packaged up parts of the NHS to be privatise and cherry-picked by corporations like Virgin.
· New Labour signed most of the PFI contracts that have bankrupted many hospitals.
· If the New Labour/Blairite MPs defeat Jeremy Corbyn in their next coup, there will be very little difference between Labour and Tories in future.
· But if you strengthen Corbyn on 8 June, you could help get rid of the Blairite Cancer from Labour.
· Nigel Farage said “I think we are going to have to move to an insurance-based system of healthcare.”
· Paul Nuttall said “I would like to congratulate the coalition government for bringing a whiff of privatisation into the beleaguered National Health Service. I would argue that the very existence of the NHS stifles competition, and as competition drives quality and choice, innovation and improvements are restricted.”
· They are trying to deny it now though. Don’t be fooled.
Only you can stop them all
