A leaked report reveals that a Tory-branded, high-explosive missile is aimed at our NHS and set to be fired – unless the Tories are voted out tomorrow. It’s a missile that reveals the Big Lie the Tories have spouted about protecting the NHS and its funding.
The full article is behind a paywall at the Health Service Journal, but health commentator Roy Lilley has helpfully laid out some of the appalling damage that will be done by what he calls ‘an Exocet missile‘ if the Tories are not put out of reach of the anti-NHS ‘red button’.
If we allow them to, the Tories will:
- dump the NHS Constitution, eroding our rights to health-care and the government’s accountability for it to almost nothing
- extend waiting times beyond the horror show we’re already seeing in our NHS
- close operating theatres and wards that are already overloaded
- cut staff numbers
