The Tory healthcare bait-and-switch: after running down the NHS they suggest A KIND OF health insurance

Tory Brexiteers: what a gang of Con artists!

They told us Brexit would make it possible to properly fund the National Health Service (remember the “£350 million a week” lie?), bring down waiting lists and make it easier for patients to access their GP.

None of that happened.

So now they’re shifting their focus to say that private health insurance is the answer – but even with that, they’re not being honest!

Sir Edward Leigh suggested that private healthcare on lines similar to those in other European countries might help people who have paid for the NHS all their lives avoid standing at the back of a two-year waiting list.

But that’s not value for money if you’ve already paid into the National form of health Insurance all your life, is it?

And European insurance systems are highly regulated – which is something the Tories hate with all their passion.

No – he’s trying a “bait-and-switch” tactic – pretend to offer you Europe-style insurance and then actually sell you United States-style insurance instead.

Consider this:

That American model, shown in the video clip, is terrifying. Thousands of pounds per month for five years, or an unpayable amount, demanded immediately; bankruptcy.

In a UK where the Tories are deliberately pushing wages through the floor, it’s a ridiculous proposition. You won’t be able to afford the kind of health insurance they’re peddling, so it’s pointless for them to offer it to you.

But most of the people who won’t be able to afford it… don’t vote.

They’re the kind of people who say politics doesn’t interest them, or doesn’t affect them.

Imagine how they’re going to feel after they let the NHS be sold out from under them, then have an accident or a life-changing illness hits them… and they’re presented with the bill.
