NHS doctor & campaigner demolishes Keir Starmer’s public/private NHS partnership

Dr Bob Gill is a leading campaigner for the restoration of the National Health Service to its former position as an entirely publicly-owned organisation serving the health of the people of the UK and not the profits of a few corporate shareholders.

On Not The Andrew Marr Show, he destroyed Keir Starmer’s claim that a future Labour government would be dedicated to “improving the NHS” by expanding private sector involvement in it.

“If Starmer was a doctor, he fails to examine the patient, fails to come up with an accurate diagnosis, but has a prescription for a medicine which is going to kill the patient,” he said.

“Where is this idle workforce in the private sector that is going to help us? Why is it necessary that we have to use private sector capacity?

“Starmer, New Labour and the Tories have all engineered a collapse of NHS services so they can present the private sector as coming to our rescue.

“The solution Starmer is prescribing for us is the same old New Labour pro-privatisation nonsense.”

He said: “Public-private partnership is a mechanism to conceal corruption… Money we pay in taxes is being siphoned off for other uses – for corporate profit, for shareholders.

“Starmer and Wes Streeting have indicated time and time again that they have no desire to restore the NHS.

“The prescription he should be writing for the NHS is a re-nationalisation Bill… That is definitely not what a Starmer-led Labour Party is going to deliver.”

He challenged our friends in the mainstream news media to get Starmer to name a single public/private partnership that has not enriched the shareholders and CEOs of the private company.

“Public/private partnership is a con trick,” he warned.

    Starmer is a traitor to all that is honest and decent! He is a bought and paid for stooge of the Israelis. Starmer has more faces than the clock below Big Ben, a tory and establishment scumbag that should have no place in the labour party! He and his backstabbing, paid for cronies have no interest in serving Britain or the British people!
