Alarmist title, but the most likely scenario.
If you’re at all interested in the NHS – and you should be – I urge you to watch this. It’s long (01.15.00) but very much worthy of your time.
I found it a massive eye opener. I’ve been amazed at how little has been said on the subject of NHS privatisation on here. Particularly being a mountain bike forum where many of us are more than familiar with the insides of hospitals.
Whether you believe in healthcare being a public service, or indeed if you think the NHS is unfit for purpose and assume the forthcoming US style insurance model will fix it, please just take an hour and a bit of your life and sit through this video.
It is now well past the time the public needs to be making a huge noise about this. This is a covert, planned demolition that’s been going on for 20 years, with the backing of both the Tories and Labour. It’s not too late to stop it yet but it will be extremely soon, and those who have been trying to take action aren’t getting anywhere because nobody is listening.
I’m going to bump this a few times if it doesn’t get any attention, because I can’t really overstate the importance of it. Beyond a bit of noise in the Mirror (of all things), the media is staying alarmingly quiet on the matter. It’s quite terrifying.
