New shows Johnson promoting ‘noble’ think-tank that aims to open NHS to private US health corporations
A new video has exposed the dishonesty of Boris Johnson’s denials that he intends to privatise the NHS and open it to massive US health-corporations in a free-trade deal with Donald Trump.
Highlighting Trump’s comments that the NHS must be ‘on the table’ in any trade deal, the video notes Tory denials – but then shows think tank the ‘Initiative [initially ‘Institute’] for Free Trade’ (IFT) promoting allowing US corporations to provide services and even run hospitals.
And Boris Johnson speaking at the IFT’s launch event – paid for by public money – to describe its ‘crucial’ status and praising its ‘noble mission’:
Boris Johnson will deny again this evening that he plans to hand over the NHS to Donald Trump and US corporations.
But the ‘smoking gun’ has his grubby, dishonest fingerprints all over it.
