Twitter thread reveals just how gross is the government’s lie that it is providing adequate protective equipment to NHS staff
Medical kink company MedFet UK has revealed how it donated its entire stock of scrubs to the NHS free of charge to a ‘desperate’ NHS hospital.
But the company didn’t stop there. In a Twitter thread, it revealed that this was not a one-sided, spontaneous gesture – and condemned the government for lying to the nation about what it is, or really isn’t, providing to doctors, nurses and other NHS staff, before urging voters never to forgive the Tories for their damage to our NHS staff and the patients who rely on them.
The business said that had been contacted by desperate NHS procurement staff begging for PPE – the personal protective equipment vital for NHS staff trying to save patients suffering the worst effects of the new coronavirus – because the government is still not providing sufficient stocks or the right type of PPE to those putting their lives on the line every day in the battle against the virus:
MedFet UK had not only been contacted by one hospital desperate for PPE, but by ‘representatives of NHS procurement all over the country, trying to source basic protective equipment and clothing’, as a ‘last-resort supplier’.
Although the company is generally apolitical, it felt it had to publicly condemn the Tories’ ‘scandalous’ apathy in a time of crisis – and draw attention to the ‘decade of chronic underfunding and cuts which has left the NHS barely able to cope’ even under normal circumstances, let alone in a national crisis.
And it memorably urged voters, when the crisis passes, to remember the government’s abject abandonment of its duty to NHS workers and to all of us:
Let’s not forget, or forgive, the ones who sent the NHS into this battle with inadequate armour and one hand tied behind its back.
The Tories have had months to prepare for this crisis – and years to protect an NHS they swore was ‘safe in our hands’. They have not failed – they have chosen.
The media’s whitewashing of the Tories’ malignant and reckless behaviour is ongoing – and as soon as the crisis is over they will ramp up the excuses and the rewriting of history in the hope that we’ll all move on and memories will fade. That must not be allowed to happen.
Never forget – and never forgive.
