A gurning Theresa May stumbles over her explanation of how a future Conservative government will NON-fund the National Health Service.

Theresa May promised us £8 billion more, every year, for the NHS in ‘her’ manifesto. In fact, she is providing no extra money at all.

The game was given away by Damian Green on yesterday’s (May 21) Andrew Marr show. He said the money would be found by redirecting funds that were already within the NHS:

And Mrs May herself confirmed the truth in a say-everything-you-can-to-hide-it interview with Andrew Neil:

So now you know. Simon Stevens, head of the NHS, asked for between £8 billion and £20 billion per year – the difference being that between a health service that is ‘Just About Managing’ (to steal a slogan from Mrs May) and one that is performing well.

The Tories originally promised £9 billion. In their manifesto, they cut it to the bare minimum of £8 billion.

But they will actually provide nothing at all.

Do you honestly think your health is safe with the Conservatives?

Or perhaps you agree with this:

Remember – if the Conservatives are returned to office on June 9, they will close 24 Accident and Emergency departments immediately.

Where will you go then, if you need life-saving treatment? A private hospital?

Can you afford to put your life in the hands of the Tories?

Or will you choose sanity, and vote for Labour on June 8?
