So, not content with appointing a minister for health that (literally) wrote the book on how to privatise the NHS without the public noticing, Theresa May has now publicly stated that she supports the Naylor report..

now, the Naylor report is dull as f***, but its available to read with a simple google search. the crux of it is this. NHS trusts are to be incentivised (by withholding their funding) to sell off their capitol assets (which would then have to be rented back from the private companies at increased cost). Not only that, but the taxpayer will subsidise the sale.

so, unless they want more funding withheld, an NHS trust needs to sell off that £10B hospital to a private company (then probably renting it back at a massive yield), and the taxpayer will match the private bid.

so we build a hospital for £10B, then sell it off and the taxpayer pays half (another £5B) to earn the £5B from the company. so essentially we pay £10B to build a private company a hospital, that we have to rent back off them.

oh, and guess who wrote about this strategy in his book? Yup, Jeremy *unt

Whitehall/Brussels are equally remote from me.

You guys live in a country small enough where you can hop a train and be there to strangle fucks like this in an afternoon, never forget that, and more importantly never let *them* forget it.

Faceless Brussels bureaucrats are quite cheap and efficient. Our Bureaucrats will destroy Britain without their help. I expect the same would be true in Spain too.

My typos obscured my point. You guys can do something about your assholes much easier than we can. Drop 'em in the Thames.

Remember, they have soccer matches every hour, on the hour. Lots of opportunity for correction via crowds.

Odd how you are basically telling Brits to revolt, a country that has mostly outlawed firearms. No, they can't strangle [the fucks] and [the fucks] have little to fear because of that.

I think you have little chance of revolt in the USA. Individuals with private firearms made no difference in the revolt in 1775 and will continue to make no difference to government in the USA now. They will kill a lot of your citizens though.

If I were you I would be opposed to this and appalled that any politician would think it was a good idea.

That said, if you agree then one response is to convince all the opposition parties to announce that their policy when/if they regain a majority is to confiscate any such items that the current Gov. sells you now. Whole hospitals even.

So, buying them is a risk. Hopefully a risk not worth taking.

Guns don't make the difference, focus and planning does. Box cutters were enough to make a hole in the pentagon.
