NHS - Nation's Hospitals Sold?

Try to imagine Labour's protests had the Conservatives dared to propose selling London's hospitals and leasing them back...

Labour's plans would make sense if Britain didn't need any hospitals twenty years from now. As it is, selling and leasing hospitals back will cost the taxpayer millions more in the long run!

Can we assume the hospitals will be sold to offshore trusts to avoid tax!?!

When you've played footloose with the economy and dug yourself a £6billion black hole, you need cash and you need it now!

Anyway there shouldn't even be an NSH per-say, we should all have social insurance and go to which ever hospital we like. But that’s another debate for another day.

of course only English hospitals will be flogged off to keep uk plc afloat.

In Australia we have a Medi Care card that entitles us to go to any Doctor we want, it's a great system.

£6 billion? You are having a larf, aren't you?

They're wasting £100 billion a year. Possibly.

Having sold Britain's gold reserves just before the surge in gold prices, it's ironic that the Government is now looking to sell commercial properties when the market has already slumped 20% from historic highs!!
