No change, then – except a new face to run the drive to give NHS to US corporations – as recipient of donations from health companies takes over role
Former Chancellor Sajid Javid, who quit under Boris Johnson when Johnson’s office sacked Javid’s aide without telling him, has replaced Matt Hancock as Health Secretary following Hancock’s resignation this evening.
Javid resigned in February 2020 after Johnson and Dominic Cummings sacked one of his advisers without even telling him and then told him to sack the rest of his advisory team. Among Javid’s donations is £11,000 received from Moundsley Healthcare in 2013.
A sign of Johnson’s weakness but not of change, then – except a ‘clean skin’ for the next phase of the Tory plan to gift the NHS to US health corporations.
