Are the right-wing papers trying to hasten privatisation of the NHS by discrediting staff?
There appears to be a sinister plan by the right-wing media to dismantle the NHS by attempting to discredit NHS staff, blaming them for a decade of underfunding and poor workforce planning

This Writer can’t really understand why the Tories want to move us on to an insurance-based health system when that’s what we’re on already. Attlee and Bevan didn’t call it National Insurance for fun, you know!
The simple reason privatised health care won’t work in the UK is that we already pay out health insurance into a system that is far more efficient – because it pools our resources – than a system in which we all pay individually ever could be.
Any problems with the NHS lie in the choices of what is done with the money. Those choices are bad at the moment because the Conservatives are desperate to hand the whole thing over to private firms who prize their profits over your health. If they gave up and concentrated on providing good health care, the situation would reverse rapidly.

If I were still a member of the Labour Party, I would probably be expelled for publicising this.
But that is because Labour is currently run by puppets of the Israeli government. Think about it.

Government ran national disability survey – but didn’t bother to read most of the responses
Only a tiny proportion of the views expressed by the thousands of disabled people who took part in the government’s national disability survey have been read by a minister or civil servant, a freedom of information response suggests.https://t.co/bjl9UpVDcs

Boris Johnson’s £250m ‘Best of British’ flagship could be designed by foreigners

That’s Tory outsourcing and globalism for you. It would make him into a liar (again) – so he’s obviously not going to be bothered about that.
It should be scrapped anyway.
Johnson threatens to remain as prime minister for another decade

Well, Labour certainly won’t be able to stop him, with Keir Starmer or any of his right-wing cult members as leader – and they aren’t going to let anybody lead the party who actually knows how to beat the Tories.
Still, there’s always the chance that one of Johnson’s own cronies will backstab him instead.
Oh, but wait…!
That’ll do it. Landslide victory incoming.

Oh. My goodness.
He has written 14,000 words in yet another attempt to reset his failed leadership – why can’t he just give up? – and still won’t actually stand for anything by the end of it!
That’s convinced me. Johnson will be in government until he dies – or we do, whichever comes first.
