DAVES PRIVATISATION OF THE NHS - VOTE IN LORDS TODAY FIXED ?

DAVES PRIVATISATION OF THE NHS - VOTE IN LORDS TODAY FIXED ?

Postby Cannydc » Wed Oct 12, 2011 6:22 am

Dave’s bid to dismantle the NHS and open it up to greedy profiteers faces its final hurdle today with a House of Lords vote.

But as a worried nation puts its faith in peers they hope will bring the PM’s dangerous reforms to a shuddering halt, it was claimed yesterday 40 members of the chamber have a vested interest in seeing hospitals privatised.

People hoping for a fair and objective vote based on what is best for patients could be in for a ­disappointment over the ­revelations that lords and baronesses carry out a variety of work for health firms that could cash in on the changes.

Among them is former Tory Health Secretary Virginia Bottomley who is a director of Bupa and Lord Naseby, chair of Invesco Perpetual Recovery Trust – investors in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Dave’s Health and Social Care Bill is sure to the floodgates for a host of private firms to cash in on sickness, leaving poorer patients to make do with second-rate care.

Let's hope the vote fails today.

this was always gonna happen regardless of who is in power

just like it did with the prisons, dust, council tax etc etc etc


they just all love moving ever more of our money

and stuffing it in their own accounts

as for the Lords

who on earth would trust that bunch :ohshi:

they was either born to it, or were rewarded for treasonous acts


a more disgusting bunch its hard to imagine

where the fuck is guy when you need him :shoot:
