News of the NHS failings are reported as terrible scandals but the day to day successes are not reported at all. This media bias is not surprising since a large number of news agencies are part of the same establishment that decides how we should live our lives and how to maximise the profits of the more affluent minority.
The Guardian newspaper has published an article about yet another attempt to destroy our health service: “Shrinking the size of the state by abolishing the NHS and limiting overseas aid to humanitarian disasters could save more than £200bn a year and pave the way for growth-generating tax cuts, says a leading free-market think tank.
The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), responsible for many of the policies implemented by Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s, said the plans to tackle Britain’s budget deficit during the current parliament are not radical enough”.
As the cuts to all public services implemented by the UK’s coalition government begin to bite, this piece of advice can only be see as manipulation to convince the outraged population to accept this onslaught quietly. Not likely though.
