Did Jeremy Hunt just say he’ll only meet A&E target after most patients have died waiting?

Jeremy Hunt – what a miserable excuse for a government minister!

Today he was challenged by his counterpart in the Labour Party, Jon Ashworth, to explain his utter failure to reach waiting time targets in Accident and Emergency departments.

The only time a Conservative Government intent on starving the NHS of resources will ever manage to see people within four hours of their arrival at A&E is after those in the greatest need have died while waiting to be seen.

He trotted out a lot of twaddle about more people being seen than during Labour’s time in government – hard to believe as the difference in the numbers is so great and – of course – Jeremy Hunt has been closing A&E departments.

And he said the NHS would achieve the four-hour waiting time target next year.

Next year? After the general election and if the Tories win? That’ll be convenient, won’t it?

The only time a Conservative Government intent on starving the NHS of resources will ever manage to see people within four hours of their arrival at A&E is after those in the greatest need have died while waiting to be seen.

So Mr Hunt is saying he thinks his incompetence will have killed off the people who most need the NHS, sometime during 2018. See for yourself:

We need better than this.

We need a government that will take the NHS back into the public domain.

We need an administration that will take all the public money that is going into private health companies’ bank accounts and use it to treat patients instead.

We need a Labour government. And we need it now.

    Of all the politicians this Hunt is the one that makes me feel genuinely ill with his lies and globalist policies of privatising everything presented in such a slimey manner he to me is the real face of the Cons. He just cannot help showing his true self.

    what i dont understand is this (correct me if im wrong) but by privatising the NHS , doesnt that mean there will be no need for a health minister? effectively doing himself out of a job? same with transport. and other ministerial jobs.

    The archetypal swivel-eyed Tory loon who intends to implement a Kaiser Permanente clone on NHS England. Problem is, in the US KP only covers those in employment. What about those not working or retired?

      I have seen an article elsewhere where there have been talks regarding limiting the amount of healthcare given to groups such as the pensioners ,disabled etc.Given the rationing and restrictions already in place its not too big a stretch to believe this being true.
