Staff tear into Tory PM over false promises and cuts
On the day when Jeremy Corbyn dramatically revealed the Tories’ secret documents on their sell-out of the NHS to the US, Boris Johnson appeared at West Cornwall hospital in Penzance in another attempted PR stunt.
It backfired spectacularly. Again.
NHS staff tore into Johnson about his sudden promise to magic up thousands of nurses after a decade of understanding:

But in spite of its obvious relevance to the huge revelations about the Tories’s negotiations with Donald Trump about NHS ‘markets’ and drug prices, the BBC has not mentioned Johnson’s roasting. A search of the BBC News website reveals no relevant results:
The BBC News channel has not mentioned it.
And yet we know the BBC was there. A BBC reporter put out an anodyne tweet about locals telling Johnson about bus services:
But not a word about the only interesting event during Johnson’s stage-managed visit – the outrage of NHS staff that the untrustworthy Tory showed his face to tout his fake nurse promise.
Yet again, the BBC is covering for Johnson’s unpopularity and inability to meet real people.
This election is the Establishment vs Corbyn and the few vs the many.
As it has ever been.
