Tory PM is a disaster for the NHS as much as his predecessors – and more
New NHS data on NHS Accident and Emergency department (A&E) performance has revealed that Boris Johnson has outdone even his disastrous predecessors in terms of the damage inflicted upon the NHS, the people who rely on it and the people who are fighting against the tide to keep it running.
The number of people seen within the target time at A&E departments has fallen to a new low in the newly-published figures, as this image of the data – sorted to put the worst numbers at the top of the table – reveals:
That you can never trust a Tory with the NHS is no secret to the health staff, patients and NHS campaigners who experience the consequences of the Tories’ contempt for the health service.
But Boris Johnson – whose campaign is rapidly destroying the illusion of his popularity – is reaching new lows even by his own party’s grim and dismal standards. And if he gets back into power, he has refused to rule out parceling even more of it off to his pals and backers – including Donald Trump and US corporations.
