UKIP Donor: Replace ‘Luddite’ NHS with American System – Hope Not Hate

“More evidence that the Kippers really do hate and despise the NHS,” writes Beastrabban, linking to an article by anti-fascist website Hope Not Hate about comments Arron Banks made to the Financial Times. The article begins:

“One of UKIPs top funders has called for a major overhaul of the “Luddite” NHS and increased involvement of the private sector in the health service.

“Arron Banks, who recently donated £1m to the xenophobic party told The Financial Times: ‘The NHS is so Luddite because everyone believes it’s free, well it isn’t free, it comes at a massive cost, it’s unreconstructed, it’s almost communist in the way it does things’.”

    People go on about UKIP being bigots, but I think that’s their way to get people fighting amongst themselves, while the Tories and ex-Tories who make up the UKIP act worse than any of those they put down. Such as giving their school and club friends safe seats, to live for free off expenses. Will Farage who employs his foreign wife on tax payers money want her to live in Britain? How can anybody seriously imagine all the ex-Tories that make up the UKIP would suddenly start caring about British people? The Tories got us into the European market when they thought it would only be good for their corporate donors. As soon as there were directives good for workers like allowing enough breaks and holidays, Thatcher started making the rest of Europe hate us and turning us into a USA state. Thatcher made us the only country that allowed the USA to use us as an airport to bomb Libya, which led to Lockerbie. Other countries made them fly around, and the Queen was upset at having such an uncaring PM. That was in the cold war when Russia was an ally of Libya, and the USA were planning a protective shield but we would have nothing. Then John Major first made us the 2nd largest force to invade Iraq, and committed us to staying there as the only other country to go on regular bombing raids with the USA up until the 2nd war, so we had so many commitments there by the 2nd war, we couldn’t have left if we wanted. Then the Tories voted against House of Lords reform that Labour introduced, so their upper class friends could be paid for doing nothing, with expenses and subsidised bars and restaurants. Around the same time they also voted against a minimum wage for others. I could write all day about it. People need to point out how much they would mistreat British people, as some think they care about the British because UK is in the name. They only want to leave the EU because it prevents them mistreating British people, and they want to mistreat British workers so their upper class friends and corporate donors can make more money. Their main policy is to get rid of human rights.
