Shock revelation: Liar Boris Johnson has been secretly selling out the NHS

Boris Johnson has been selling out the National Health Service in negotiations on a trade deal that would allow US companies to set drug prices, it has been claimed.

The revelation about these secret talks could not come at a worse time for the Tory government, as it prepares to dissolve Parliament and launch a general election campaign.

This is electoral poison for the Conservatives as Boris Johnson, health secretary Matt Hancock and international trade secretary Liz Truss have all insisted that the NHS is “off the table” in talks with the US if the UK leaves the European Union.

The threat is that NHS finances would be put at risk by a trade deal with the US that would force the health service to buy more expensive drugs.

And there is evidence that it is an overarching Tory policy to lay the NHS open to exploitation by US pharmaceutical monopolies, as the talks began under Theresa May (who also lied about them) but have continued under Mr Johnson.

Who will vote for a government that is bad for our health – and deliberately lies about the harm it is doing?

Here’s the information from Channel 4’s Dispatches:

The Independent has reported that more than one-third of people surveyed in a recent poll said they were “very concerned” about the future impact of a deal with Washington on the NHS.

Meanwhile, Tories like Michael Gove have apparently been lying through their teeth (metaphorically, on Twitter)…

… and the public isn’t having any of it:

The message for the general election is clear:

Your NHS is not safe with Boris Johnson – or any of his Conservative liars.

    While you were sleeping, American corporations have already taken over mostly all Pharmacies in the UK.

    Lloyds Pharmacy is owned by The McKesson Corporation and Celesio (Distribution) and of course Walgreens Boots Alliance whose distribution company CVS/Alphega Pharmacy not only supply Boots but many Local “Independent” Pharmacies.

    So considering their grip already on the NHS, it’s not much of a leap to believe the US Pharma Companies who are struggling with US regulations want to exploit the NHS in the UK with the UK Government’s blessing.

    I would be very disappointed if senior civil servants were not talking to US drug companies about the price of their products. We are much beholden to these companies for the many life enhancing drugs that they provide, it is most important that we get the best possible deals to for the benefit of the NHS.

      You do understand that that is precisely the opposite of what has been going on, don’t you? An exclusive deal with these US firms would ADD £27 billion to the annual NHS drugs bill, pushing it to £45 billion.
