    Private health insurance doesn’t cover A & E!!

    “That’s the standard technique of privatisation: defund, make sure things don’t work, people get angry, you hand it over to private capital.” Noam Chomsky Top of the range private medical insurance is no good to you if you are involved in an accident and need urgent treatment. Private hospitals do not have Accident and Emergency (A & E) departments so you will be taken to an NHS hospital with an A & E. Up and down England A & Es are being threatened with closure as figures from NHS Improvement (the new combined name for Monitor and part of the…

    The real costs of NHS contracting out

    The NHS is being given away! Normally, ‘privatisation’ means that shares are sold by the state-owned organisation to private companies, financial institutions and individuals. But shares are not being sold in the NHS – it is being privatised by contracting out. It’s being given away, the taxpayer is not receiving one penny, and it’s downright theft. Not surprisingly, those benefitting from the taxpayers’ enforced largesse claim that this is not privatisation by the back door. The NHS will still exist although the provision of services will be contracted out to ‘any qualified provider’, which is supposed to be more efficient…

The UK economy today has some startling similarities to the economy of Nazi Germany and privatisation is at the heart of both. The Spanish economist Germà Bel1 stated that the word – which is synonymous with neo-liberalism and Thatcher – has its origins in the German word reprivatisierung (denationalisation) and the term was first used in English by the Berlin correspondent of the Economist in 19361 to describe how the Nazi…

    Warning: The EU can seriously damage your health!!

    A  Martian spaceship is returning to Mars when the ship’s doctor tells the Captain that a crew member is very ill and will not make it back to Mars. “What’s the nearest planet?” he asks the captain. “Earth, where do you want to land?” “I’ll let you know in a few minutes.” said the doctor as he googled “best health services on planet Earth” from a keyboard on the back of his hand. He was soon on the website the Commonwealth Fund(1) and quickly saw a chart comparing the health services in the 11 richest countries on Earth. The best…
