Boris Johnson would sell out our NHS and our rights to Trump’s US for practically nothing

Not my image: Somebody else made this – indicating that concerns over the BBC’s claim to impartiality are well-founded.

We learn two things from this: That Conservatives are appallingly bad businesspeople, and that the BBC is their propaganda arm.

I know; we really knew both those things already.

But the fact that the Tories are willing to sell our NHS, our rights as workers and as human beings, our environmental standards and our consumer protections for a paltry 0.1 per cent increase in the economy, 15 years down the line, deserves highlighting.

So does the fact that the BBC was perfectly happy to tell the rest of the world about this failure, but has refused to mention it to the people it directly affects – the citizens of the United Kingdom.

The economy is already stuttering in the face of Brexit, so it seems unlikely that such a tiny gain will even offset what the UK is losing this year.

As for the BBC, I wonder if Ofcom is aware of this?

This week, the BBC broadcast information that casts a chilling light on Tory claims that a UK-US trade deal will have a significant impact on the UK’s economy.

However, this was not the BBC informing the UK. Instead, the BBC World Service, primarily aimed at overseas listeners, broadcast the information that the government’s own analysis suggests that a UK-US trade deal will bring only 0.1% growth in the UK’s economy fifteen years from now

    I had a strange dream last night. John Bercow and numerous MPs marched up to Boris in The House, put him in handcuffs, then marched him to No 10 and put him under house arrest. The date was 31st October 2019. Is this what will happen? Don’t worry, the Brexit Tories have already thought of this, and have their own devious plans.

    Although this is far from desirable. I must point out that much of what we are told, in the negative, is the worst case scenario. Nobody knows what will come to pass but if we are prepared, any ill effects will be mitigated. The state of the economy is, in part, due to fear, which is something that is not within anybody’s control. We have yet to leave the European Union and whatever happens, it is in the interest of both parties to come to a satisfactory agreement. It is important to remember that, in any negotiation, each party will be doing what it is it’s own interest… or, at least, it should; many of our politicians seem determined to do the other side’s negotiating. Much of what is affecting the economy has it roots far from these shores and is not within our control. There is a combination of factors, the largest of these being the trade dispute between the U.S.A. and China. This has had a negative effect on the stock market for some time and investors are more than a little jittery. Add to that the fall in the value of the pound, which is having a negative effect on the already faltering German economy. There are fears of a global recession. Don’t put too much stock in as of yet non-existent “Brexit.” Although it is definitely influential, fearmongers are playing it up, blaming it for all of our economic woes. Take a step back and see the bigger picture.

      And what about the planned sale of the NHS that was the focus of the article? You don’t mention that.
