Labour planned to privatise 40% of NHS as Hypocrite Corbyn accuses Johnson of selling off the health service

Labour planned to privatise 40% of NHS as Corbyn takes aim at Johnson


Corbyn’s scaremongering preaches to the converted (Picture: Google)

One quickly tires of Labour Party candidates and their Jew – hating supporters claiming, every time an election is in the offinge, the “The Wicked Conservatiovs plan to sell the NHS to private enterprise. They’ve been at it again throughout the current election cycle, and of course there is no more truth in the claims than there ever was before. But the lefties, as they glefully point at any conservatives whose heads appears over the parapet, “Witches, burn them,” that the Labour government, between 1997 and 2010 under the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair privatised much of the NHS. (Our local super-hospital where my wife was recently murdered by bureaucratic institutionalised incompetence was built by one of Blair’s Private Public Finance initiatives and is now owned by a subsidiary of HSBC, making it, perhaps, an NHSBC hospital.

So those leftie claims that the “evil conservatives” planned to sell off our ‘precious NHS’ qyickly start to look rather empty. And that is before we have considered the detail of Labour’s plans for the NHS.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn made the repeated accusation that Boris Johnson’s government, if re-elected with a majority in parliament, will see the NHS to American healthcare companies as part of a free trade deal informally discussed between Johnson and US President Donald Trump. Corbyn and his Stalinist bagman John McDonnell, along with other party figures and left leaning joursnlists in mainstream media continue to repeat this in spite of both men offering assurances that the NHS was not “for sale” and the document Corbyn and his cronies claimed revealled a secret deal containing no evidence that any such deal had been discussed.

Corbyn’s attempts to expose his imaginary Anglo – American conspiracy by producing a 451-page document “proving the NHS is for sale” during a press conference on November 27 were debunked when it was revealed that the NHS was only mentioned four times, with US officials only once asking about the UK position on our ‘health insurance’ system”. The other times the UK Health Servive was mentioned were all in the context of allowing US pharmaceutical companies access to the NHS for their products.

Despite this, the stunt has caused quite a storm, but it can be revealed how Labour were actually the first to float the idea of privatising health services in the UK.

Tony Blair took office in 1997, with the promise of removing “internal markets” in the NHS – the idea that Health Authorities ceased to run their hospitals, but “purchased” care from their own or other authorities hospitals.

However, during his second term, Mr Blair announced his administrations intention to strengthen links with the private sector as part of his plan to “modernise” the NHS. Driving Labour’s planned reforms were factors including the rising costs of medical technology and medicines, the desire to increase standards and “patient choice”, an ageing population, and a desire to control government expenditure.

It was these plans, now more than ten years old, that Corbyn referred to in his docdgy dossier on plans to sell the NHS.

Corbyn’s stunt caused a storm in an eggcup on social media as the usual suspects jumped on the bandwagon to accuse Boris and his party of planning to sell the NHS, but it is widely known that Labour were actually the first to float the idea of privatising health services in the UK, although Margaret Thatcher’s conservative government in the 1980s introduced the idea of an internal market (whatever that means’) to the NHS and also encouraged the outsourceing of certain services such as janitorial duties and waste disposal.

A Labour government under Tony Blair took office in 1997, and quickly introduced the concept of PFI, Private Finance Initiativs (also termed Private – Public partnerships,) the idea that Health Authorities ceased to own their hospitals, but hired them from private companies as a managed facility. Many left wing commentators were horrified and dismissed the idea as a ‘licence to print money’ for the private half of the partnerhip.

In 2006, Blair welcomed 11 private healthcare providers, including private health insurance firm Bupa, into this “NHS family,” in a bid to drive up the quality of services provided. Blair made his and Labour’s intentions clear in 2006 when he said “By 2008 we could have as much as 40 perrcent of acute operations done in the private sector being done under the NHS banner.”

The network’s spokesman, Mark Smith, admitted the changing healthcare market meant the independent sector was increasingly looking to the NHS for business. He said some companies had “specific targets for a large number of patients to be NHS patients in the future because undoubtedly things are changing. Wherever people are treated – in a traditional hospital, an independent hospital, a new treatment centre or in the community – it is the protection afforded to them of tax-funded healthcare, according to need and not ability to pay, which makes them NHS patients.

Nice try at wrigging out of Labour’s committment to privatising the NHS but between 2004 and 2014, demand for NHS services increased rapidly and hospital admissions increased by 32 percent, outpatient attendances by 17 percent, primary care consultations by 25 percent and community care activity by 14 percent. The only way the massive, clumsy, centralised bureaucracy that runs service could cope was by outsourcing more work. Research carried out on behalf of the GMB trade union, which represents many NHS workers, shows 15billion of health service contracts have been handed to private companies since 2015. And yet the service is still failing to cope with increased demand.

So far in 2019 £3.3billion, or 63 percent, of contracts have been given to organisations in the private sector. So though Labour Party spokespersons have not admitted as much in public, these figures prove that their manifesto committments to increase spending on health must include further outsourcing of work to the private sector. Far too much of what the organisation does has already been handed to the private sector for the position to be reversed. So Blair’s plan to put more work out to the private sector, carried on by the Conservative . Liberal Democrat coalition from 2010 and by the Conservatives from 2015 is still in place. And it has to be said that the NHS, in permanent crisis now, would have collapsed without it.

Bored With Watching The Facebook Slow Motion Train Wreck?

by Arthur Foxake

We have to admit we are bored with reporting the latest developments in the disintegration of Mark Zuckerberg and his stategic partners (The US government and their security agencies the CIA and NSA) attempt to put everybody in the world under surveillance. It’s a story our editor, Ian foresaw several years ago because as a data networks expert before he retired he knew the potential of social media for capturing and analyzing user data.

And it was inevitable that at some point such potential would be abused. The inevitable has now happened so we will simply offer summaries of mainstream news unless we have something out of the ordinary to report.

Between fake news and data harvesting, Facebook has no way to win

from The New York Post

Mark Zuckerberg is stuck in a catch-22. Any fix for Facebook’s previous big problem — fake news — would make the current big problem with data harvesting worse.

As a media company and one of Americans’ top sources of information, Facebook’s de facto anonymity and general lack of responsibility for user-generated content make it easy for propagandists to exploit. Making matters worse, it isn’t willing to impose tighter identification rules for fear of losing too many users, and it doesn’t want to be held responsible in any way for content, preferring to present itself as a neutral platform.

So Zuckerberg has been trying to fix the problem by showing people more material from friends and family and by prioritizing “trusted publishers” and local news sources over purveyors of fake news.

But the Cambridge Analytica scandal shows people may not be OK with Facebook’s data gathering, improved or not.

Privatise Child Protection?

According to reports leaked yesterday the power to take children away from unsuitable families could be privatised along with other child protection services under controversial plans to bring us into line with America’s for profit prisons, hospitals and social services systems.

The plan, originated in Department for Education (DfE), to permit the outsourcing of children’s social services in England to companies such as G4S and Serco and a few new contenders for public service contracts, Smith – Savile, Stuart Hall & Co. and PIE enterprises whose political adviser Harriet Harman said the move was long overdue. Not all experts are as supportive however. Some say profit-making companies should not be in charge of such sensitive family matters, and warn that the introduction of the profit motive into child protection may distort the decision-making process and encourage the wrong type of pimps people to get involved in the industry.

As usual when any fascistic idea emerges from the Department of Education, lefties are quick to point fingers at their favourite hate figure, Michael Gove. We preempt that by reminding you the idea is not new, it originated before the 2010 alongside a bunch of other liberal and progressive ideas floated by Gordon Brown’s national Socialist Labour government including the abolition of free speech, creating a new class of criminal activity for those who criticise the establishment or academics, andrestoring the death penalty for people who don’t vote Labour.

A DfE consultation paper published last month argues that enabling local authorities to outsource children’s social services will encourage innovation and improve outcomes for at-risk youngsters.

Innovation eh? Does that mean pedophiles would be able to experiment with new ways of abusing children under the proposed system.

Privatization of Water as an Owned Commodity Rather Than a Universal Human Right

water privatisation argentina
What water privatisation has mean in Argentina

Not so long ago, towards the end of last year, I used the words of John Lennon to provide a perspective on the psychopathic views expressed by the CEO of one of the world’s leading food processing companies. Lennon said, “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it”

He spoke the truth of course and what’s worse, when he died in 1981 things were a lot less insane that they are now.

I used that quote in a short blog post highlighting a statement made by the boss of Nestle who was expressing the view that water cannot be owned by everything and must be privatised so greedy, fascistic corporations like the one he runs can profit from it. (See the blog post with video)

The question of when water becomes property is one that nobody has yet attempted to answer. The US Government has already taken to jailing people for collecting in barrels rainwater that falls on the rooves of their home and outbuilding, for building ponds on their land to collect rainfall and for allowing farm animals to drink public property from streams and lakes.

We did warn of what was on the way, everything the increasingly tyrannical administration of The Emperor Obama are doing in violation of the US Constitution and The Geneva Convention was detailed in the policy document released by the United Nations under the title Agenda 21 which promises the abolition of private property. Well Obama may be leading the race to fascism, but we and our EU partners are being dragged that way too.

It will be interesting to see how our infallible, omnipotent leaders plan to seek restitution from the Sun, when our star’s rays cause rainclouds, or government assets of surface water to evaporate, thus destroying valuable resources the government planned to license to corporate water merchants when the vapour had condensed enough to fall to earth. They are still working on that one, meanwhile the idea that water is not a naturally occurring thing but an economic asset is taking hold.

Lord Groper Rennard

Lord Rennard, the disgraced Liberal Democrat peer, has been accused of smearing his alleged victims after claiming he had “devastating” evidence that undermined their testimony.

Groper Rennard the Liberal Democrat spokesman on sleaze, slime, sordid sex obsessions and self righteousness in the House of Lords who was suspended yesterday for bringing everything he went near into disrepute and also defying Nick Clegg by refusing to apologise to women who have accused him of sexual harassment, has gone on the attack. Ah well, if the party refuses to kiss his arse (oh gawd … the thought, ) why not destroy it?

Rennard’s claim the to have “evidence” of a conspiracy against him was presented in a 2,600-word rebuttal of the allegations of sexual misconduct. The crisis now threatens the position of Liberal Demotwats leader Nick Clegg.

Lord Rennard states that his private “research” on one of the women who alleged he had assaulted her. According to Rennard, his lawyer Lord Carlile described his evidence against the complainant as devastating, adding: “The party should have done this sort of research a year ago.”

One of his alleged victims was so concerned by the statement that she told The Telegraph she feared he planned to reveal details about her private life and previous relationships.

Rennards victims reponded by saying he is trying to smear them.

Very likely, and I think we all know what he would like to smear them with (Oops, pardon!).

With Rennard now unlikely to be able to return to a leading role in the Liberal Democrats we hear another former party strategist is Huhneing his CV in the hope of returning to a high profile role. The Liberal Democrats these days rally are a sorry bunch of failures, rejects and no – hopers. Come back Champagne Charlie Kennedy, all is forgiven.

Political Correctness turns Gold To Smelly Stuff

Amid scenes of unrestrained joy everywhere in the nation (yes, even here in the Boggart Blog office) the lefties of the Politically Correct Thought Police and their Guardian reading cohorts have to try and turn our gold medals to brown, smelly stuff by claiming that a disproportionate numbers of our Olympic competitors were privately educated and this is “unfair”.

The PCTP would have our 4 x 100m, relay teams selected according to quotas, the team comprising 1 black member, 1 Asian, 1 from a single parent family and 1 GBLT. After all it is not winning that matters, or even taking part but the Yooman Rights implications.

At the next Olympics, Jessica Ennis’ place in the decathlon will be taken by a 15 year old crack whore who was discovered working the mean streets on Manchester. Greg Rutherford will be dumped out of the long jump to let a one legged dwarf have a go.

This egalitarian approach to making sport non competitive and ensuring nobody loses has already been successfully introduced in the state school system where sports like “everybody-gets-a-turn-to-have-a-kick football” and the 100 metres tied to a beam race in which everybody wins and everybody loses because they all cross the line together have emilinated enjoyment of physical activity completely.

Perhaps there is a good reason why so many of out Olympic team come out of the private school system where it is still not an offence to be good at something.
