This gentleman’s words speak for themselves:
The speech was the subject of discussion today at a local Mid Wales hotel, where memories of the dark times before the National Health Service were recalled:
“People had to pay to see a doctor – so they didn’t go to see a doctor. They got sick, and then they died.”
“People had to pay for a hospital bed – unless a rich person, who had a bed already, offered to let them use that. Then, of course, they were obligated to that rich person. Gangsterism, but by a different name.”
There is much more to the privatisation of health care services than David Cameron’s lies. It is about taking health away from people who – if the Tories get their way – will have very little else.
It is about ruining other people’s lives – not for any great or noble reason – but because they can.
If you want to see the face of evil in the modern UK, it isn’t some IS terrorist. It isn’t a foreign dictator.
It is the face worn by David Cameron. By Andrew Lansley. It is even the gormless face of Jeremy Hunt.
