You cannot trust the tories with the NHS
A little bit of small print emerged blinking into the light. Among the details of the revised NHS Bill there is the fact that all NHS Trusts will have the chance to raise up to 49% of their funding from private medicine. This is a huge increase on the current 1-2%. 
The consequences are the drift to a two-tier system with the wealthy and the comfortable having instant access to the best treatment. The poor and less comfortable will have to trust to luck and the leftovers. 
People who make themselves wealthy on others misfortune are among the lowest of the low. 
Ministers who facilitate such people are beneath contempt.

  1. Can't believe how low the snivelling Tories will stoop to promote their own greedy ideology! How on earth can we publicise this appalling situation so that the communities of the UK jump up and down so much that Cameron, Osborne & Lansley just have to listen?
    Total contempt is what I feel and it's what they display towards the vast majority of the country.
