In Part 1 of this alert, we exposed the sham of UK ‘democracy’ in opening the door to the corporate ransacking of the National Health Service.
Every day, researcher Éoin Clarke runs a check on the number of parts of the NHS that have been 'carved up and offered to privateers that day. The sad news is that the NHS sell off is indeed accelerating.' Clarke has identified 81 NHS contracts worth a total of more than £2 billion that are set to be privatised, or have recently been so. He adds that there are over 2,300 'chunks of the NHS that private companies can now bid for.' Amazingly, 'cuddly' Richard Branson's Virgin now controls 18 NHS contracts across 15 English counties.
It's amazing how little coverage this received and is still yet to receive. Exactly when privatization has proved such a major disaster around the world in highly industrialized and post-industrialized nations, here are the Thatcherites doing a hatchet job on what was a great example of making healthcare available and affordable for all. Now it's healthcare and profits for the rich at the direct, negative expense of everyone else: the "conservative/Libertarian" way: evil -- sheer evil, greed, selfishness writ large.
Read the whole article to see how the conservatives didn't run on doing this and have slipped it through with little to no public exposure or debate:
