Evil Labour Government Helped Private Companies Profit From NHS

If you live in Heywood and Middleton and were thinking of voting for the greedy, paedophile loving, elitists’ party, Labour because you have been taken in by the lies peddled at the Labour conference that the wicked Tories plan to privatize the NHS, think again.

In their four and a half years fronting the coalition, the Tories have done little to address the problems of the NHS, but they cannot privatise it because the greedy, paedophile loving elitists of Labour already did that under the leadership of the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair.

Here’s a story from Yorkshire locan newspaper The Wakefield Express about how corporate Construction giants Balfour Beatty are making millions from their investment in the Private Finance Initiative. Private Finance Initiatives were a Labour idea under which the government loaned construction and healthcare corporations mony at low interests rates to build and equip hospitals and then the NHS rented them back as fully managed facilities, giving the owners a seven or eight percent return on investment. Easy money:

Balfour Beatty makes £42m profit out of Pinderfields and Pontefract Hospitals

But aren’t the Tories to blame for doing nothing, you might well ask. Not really, you see the evil political pimps of the Labour Party gave their corporate billionaire buddies a legally binding guarantee that their income from PFI contracts could never be cut. Left wing writer George Monbiot explains in this 2010 article from the Guardian. While you are at The Guardian site, search ‘Monbiot pfi’ because George has a whole string of articles exposing the corrupt PFI deals Labour entered into.

I wrote on the evils of Labours NHS Private Finance Initiatives, which were really nothing more than a licence to steal taxpayers money that we thought had been invested in the NHS. Blair’s billionaire buddies benefitted but you and I ended up with a struggling NHS being bled dry by corporate profiteers and run by self serving managers who when they take early retirement award themselves million pound redundancy packages and then, a few months later are rehired as external consultants (Western Daily Press) earning several times their final salary in consultancy fees. (A second link on that story from The Guardian again) These deals were common under the Labour government, The Coalition have at least taken some small and rather inept steps towards addressing such abuses (and were immediately attacked by screeching lefties for doing so.)

So vote Labour if you want to fill the country with perverts who will rape and kill British children and think it is a good idea to hand our NHS over to theives and plunderers.

OK, still thinking of voting Labour because you think the NHS will be safer in their hands.

The NHS Was Privatized By The Labour Government

health corporate businessHealth is a corporate business now, your wellbeing comes second to profit

The Queen’s Speech yesterday was the usual non event, but as the rabid rabble of Marxists, Trotskyists, Stalinists, Maoists, Corporatists, and Butterkists lined up, sweaty toothed and with eyes bulging madly to denounce The Coalition government, other news published yesterday and reported in mainstream media today ought to have reminded us what an inept, idiotic, ideologically obsessed, intellectually bankrupt, reality challenged bunch of tossers constitute our only alternative to Cameron’s Coalition Of The Clueless.

In an exclusive, The Independent reported that with the economy under the stewardship of Brown The Clown and Ed (the very fat man that waters the workers beer)?Balls, Labour ministers helped private firms make quick killing from PFI, a scandal totally ignored by the left dominated media (with the exception of some valiant efforts by The Guardian’s George Monbiot to raise awareness of how PFI was just a fancy name for shovelling taxpayer’s money into the coffers of billionaire buddies of theose gobshites Blair, Brown and Mandelson.

Here’s just one of George Monbiot’s reports on the insanity of Labour’s PFI schemes, search ‘Monbiot pfi’ for plenty more. George explains in simple terms how this method of financing public expenditure is just legalised extortion.

And next time you hear some swivel eyed lefty raving about The Tories privatising the NHS, remember that the job may have been started by Margaret Thatcher’s conservative government, but it was carried on with extreme relish by the shits and hypocrites of Labour under the war criminal Tony Blair.

In spite of this latest report of Labour’s addiction to wealth and power however, there are still people out there who think the nation would be better off with these scum sucking scab lice back in power.

from The Independent:

Private contractors have pocketed hundreds of millions of pounds of profits in the past four years by exploiting deals that were controversially awarded to them by the last Labour government.

Companies that were awarded contracts to build and maintain state schools for 25 years have been doubling their money by “flipping”, or selling on, the Private Finance Initiative (PFIs) projects just four years after finishing them.

The chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee, Margaret Hodge, described the huge profits as “a total scandal” and said it meant “we have all been ripped off”. The Independent’s findings shine a new light on how private companies have made fortunes in pure profit from the rising value of the schools and hospitals they have built – value which critics say could have been retained by the taxpayer.

Four contractors alone made profits of more than £300m. Of the companies studied – Balfour Beatty, Carillion, Interserve and Kier – Balfour Beatty is by far the biggest beneficiary of the rising value of its Private Finance Initiative and Public Private Partnership deals. It alone has made profits of £188.9m.

Only this week, it flipped the University Hospital of North Durham and seven schools in Knowsley, near Liverpool, generating a gain of £51m. In the case of the schools, it doubled its money from the £19m investment made when the 27-year contracts were awarded in 2007 and 2011.

The Durham hospital, which was one of the first hospitals to be built under PFI-style private financing, was dogged with controversy about bed shortages and poor design when it opened.

Carillion has made £12.2m, Kier £20.7m and Interserve £90m, according to stock market filings and company documents.

Boggart Blog’s partner in crime (the crime of exposing establishment corruption and cronyism)have already reported on the sheer looniness of PFI schemes and how only Labour economists could think there was any befefit to the public in giving a private firm the money to build a new hospital and then renting that hospital from the private owners as a fully managed facility.

What is most upsetting however is that the shits and hypocrites of the Labour party assume we the punters are too stupid to see through their criminality.
