Vox Political: Anti-EU Chief Wants NHS Privatised

I think stories like this have been uncovered before. Mike yesterday put up a piece from the Independent reporting that Arron Banks, one of the leading donors to the Brexit campaign, would like to see the NHS privatised entirely. Mike points out that this contradicts the Brexit campaign’s claims that the money saved from Britain’s EU contributions would be spent on the NHS and other matters like that. They wouldn’t. The government would simply make another tax cut, giving more money to Britain’s bloated rich.

Really, I believe there has already been more than one story about this. Nigel Farage, or as one of the commenters here calls him, Niggle Frogface, himself has very ambivalent attitudes towards the health service. Sometimes he seems to be endorsing it, while at others he’s recommending its privatisation and replacement by an insurance-led system, and mixing with those, who are blatantly in favour of its privatisation. This for me is enough not to want to have anything to do with Brexit or its grubby, parasitical leaders.
