Peter Stefanovic: Certain Members of the Government Should be Handcuffed and Charged with Criminal Negligence

Peter Stefanovic is one of the great critics of the government and its foul policies, whose tweets have been reposted by Mike. In this very short video from the Artist Taxi Driver, Stefanovic tells him exactly what he thinks should be done to certain members of the government.

Stefanovic and Chunky Mark are in Nottingham, and the video comes after a conference on mental health care and awareness. Stefanovic states that there is a crisis in care, and that people are dying as a result. He says that the greatest threat to mental health services today is the gross negligence of this government, combined with the massive ineptitude of Jeremy Hunt. He describes Hunt as the ‘worst (health) secretary I have ever known’, and then goes on to say that it goes far beyond ineptitude into criminal negligence. He ends by saying that if he had his way, there are certain members of the government, who would be handcuffed, charged and thrown in jail for gross negligence – manslaughter. It’s that simple.’

He’s right, except that I don’t believe the deaths and the cuts are the result of incompetence. I think they’re the result of a carefully considered policy of destroying the NHS ready for its privatisation. This is what the Tories want, ever since Margaret Thatcher, and 20 years before her, in the 1950s, when the Tory right declared we couldn’t afford it.

They hope that if they run it down and make it as error-ridden and as substandard as possible, people will happily move to private healthcare. Or at least, the affluent middle classes. And so it’s privatisation will go ahead relatively painlessly, rather than with the massive outcry and electoral annihilation the Tories would face if they privatised it immediately.

Save the NHS. Get them out. Now.

    American law uses a term “depraved indifference” which seems to encompass a range from “labour” right to tory right regarding sick and disabled and “liberal” to right wing tories (except maybe ms wollaston) re nhs. How do we ensure that they remain in Gaol for long enough?!

      That’s a very good question, Ctesias. Perhaps a plea for a minimum sentence of at least 20 + years considering the severity of their crimes? Or would that be too low? Or even too optimistic! You can imagine that if there’s the slightest chance of the so-and-so’s going to jail, they’d have their lawyer arguing that they couldn’t be imprisoned on humanitarian grounds. Like they all suddenly developed Alzheimer’s, from which they’d miraculously recover as soon as they were released.
