The Westminster House of Hypocrisy and Corruption’s well manicured millionaire twins plans for the NHS will not see it completely disappear, it will be transformed into a safety net where the poorest will get a minimum of care and those with the money to pay will get an excellent service avoiding waiting times. It will be a 1920/30s model where money will buy you what you want.
The foundation trust hospitals will be able to offer private care along side the safety net services. Those with the money to pay will be able to choose their doctor and have their diagnosis and treatment done in rapid time avoiding the appointment and waiting time queues of the poorer members of society. The cash customers will get first call on what is the finite skills of the service, this of course will be at the expense of those unable to pay for that first class rapid service.
What was the fundamental underlying principle of the health service, treatment for all at the time of need, will be sacrificed on the altar of Mammon, the god of the corporate world.
Apart from being a disaster for the ordinary people, these plans for the Nation Health service will be bonus to the well manicured millionaire twins’ friends in the corporate world. They will now be able to scoop up billions of pounds from the health needs of the nation. Another public asset will be handed over to the corporate world.
Good bye 21st century National Health Service, hello 1930s sticking plaster and delay service for the ordinary people. The ordinary people of this country should not accept such a blatant attack on their health and well being nor the plunder of their national assets without a rigorous and sustained battle. Just as the millionaire cabal is trying to change society forever to the benefit of the corporate world, so we the ordinary people should be organising to change society forever to the benefit of all our people. It should be seen for what it is a class war battle.
