    Corbyn has spent a lot of time talking about Johnson's plans to sell the NHS to the US. However, Trump and Johnson have both denied this. So in this video, we look at the 'incriminating' documents that Corbyn has presented and discuss what it really proves.

    Boris Johnson will under-fund the NHS, period. He does not need to dirty his hands by selling it, he is a liar but he is not stupid. He will chunk the NHS into pieces to be taken over by corporations, he does not need to sell the NHS. This video is pretty naive.

    Yeah, and Trump, who campaigned by invoking Julian Assange as a hero and a great man, also now says he “know(s) nothing” about Julian Assange.
    Do not trust the United States. The US treats Britain like a colony; British leadership does what it’s told to do by US “leaders” and their handlers.

    If he dares, selli the NHS, their will be bloody riots. People in the UK, have seen what has happened to our Railways & Utilities. Overcrowded dirty & trains & very poor meals. Utility bills steadily rising frequently.
    Private Health Care is fine, providing people working dont lose, their well paid jobs later in life and end up being impoverised, like what has happened to many middle & working class people in the USA, who have been forced to sell their houses & cars to pay for their very expensive medical bills!

    The EU already infest our NHS health service with EU private companies . Healthcare is classed as an EU economic activity and all healthcare supply and provision etc must be put out to private tender ....the labour gov of 1997-2007 laid the groundwork for NHS dismantling and privatisation ( health act 2006/7) ....and considering the biggest drug making firms are in america ...the USA is already supplying us with medicine

    I don't trust the Tories with the future of the NHS, frankly (simple matter: it's the #2 priority, #1 is Brexit) but this kind of dis-ingenuousness by Corbyn is what lost him the election IMO.

    The reddit document Corbyn came up with came from russian sources, the UK and US's patent laws on medicine are closer to each other than made out in terms of patent length. Anything is on the table until one side takes it off the table, its that simple. Competition to lower drug prices can only be a good thing

    the only thing making me think the tories are planning on selling our NHS is how they redacted all the files, if it really was just something the US had asked for that they never hoped to receive then I don't see why the Tories would have to be so secretive about it

    The trade war with China started when Trump repeatedly asked to privatise all of China's state owned services with big American companies. When they said no he threw a hissy fit and ramped up his countries tax rate if they delt with China. And now once we're out of Europe we we'll head into massive talks with Trump. So yes I'd be worried. Especially when he is quoted as saying everything will be on the table.

      @JustStuff. But I don't get it though. So you mean to say that part of your health care service is nationalized??? We just have different cultures. Like we have Medicaid and Medicare which are government agencies but all their services are provided by privately owned companies.

      Steven Garcia, British people have been concerned that a free trade agreement between the UK and the US would result in parts of the UK's National Health Service being sold to American corporations, who would in turn, sell expensive, American style health insurance to the British people. This video is just going over a series of documents that are said to *prove* the current Prime Minister plans to offer the NHS to American buyers in order to secure a good trade deal with America, although it seems that this will be unlikely.

    • Steven Garcia
      Steven Garcia Month ago

      Buying what though??? You're pharmaceutical companies??? Are they nationalized in the UK??? I mean we could buy your guy's companies, like usual it'll be subsidized by American taxes and turn them a profit. But if your companies were previously nationalized what makes them any good or better than other non-nationalized companies???

    • Sean McLean

    How is allowing American companies to bid on NHS contracts “ selling” the NHS? If the American companies product or service is the most attractive they win the business. If not they don’t. Most aren’t actually American companies anyway, they are global companies.

    A fun reminder that the only party currently to have privatised the NHS is the Labour Party on the 25th November 2010. This lasted until March 2015.

    As far as i see it the governments of the world need a complete overhaul . When the bible said four horsemen it never said ,trump,johnson may and sturgen oh boy a need a copy eh that book. ask how much is there bursary just for the morning in downing street is. See if they will give up any comforts its a job like everyone else infact they argue in the commens and house of lords then sit back while the other sibe do there dance ending up sitting on there fat arse while everybody else still woking hours after there away home breaking there back either working for a jobseeker payment or getting sanctioned off some areshole with a hitler complex. thats scotland in a nutshell who paid for the champaign for the after party.

    The entire argument is beyond ridiculous and a demonstration of how easily passion can assist propaganda. The NHS is a nationally run health service. How can a nationally run health service be "sold"? The NHS could be affected by access to drugs, medical equipment, and services from the US. So, what? Access to a new market for potential savings is hardly a sell-off. Might as well say that the US is "selling" the US car industry to Japan by allowing Honda inside its borders.

    Can you do a video about the conservatives manifesto pledge for parliament to exist beyond scrutiny of the courts. I mean surely this would be an absolute constitutional crisis. Which for the current government seems to be just another day at the office.

  • ash vella
    ash vella Month ago

    To say the NHS is for sale is such vague terminology anyway. I could definitely tell you the NHS wasn't for sale whilst privatising lots of parts of it because the whole isn't for sale. We've heard these kind of lines from politicians this election on other topics. Either way the free market ideology that the Conservatives have followed religiously for decades and their years of underfunding the NHS does make me very sceptical about it being in their hands.

    Well this should be the end of TLDR if and when Johnson gets elected and then sells off the NHS which anyone with a pulse and a couple functioning brain cells knows is a very good possibility.

  • Finnbarr Martin
    Finnbarr Martin Month ago

    In this video you've left out vital historical context, and failed in your responsibility as analysts. The following is rather pertinent to the issue...
    1. Boris Johnson MP called for the break up of the 'top-down monopolistic' NHS in 2002. Jeremy Hunt co-authored a book called 'Direct Democracy' calling for the privatisation of the NHS. Thatcher's 'Central Policy Review Staff' drew up plans to privatise the NHS bit-by-bit, and replace it with mandatory private insurance.
    2. The conservative government has already sold off chunks of the NHS to Bain Capital, Virgin Healthcare, Amazon - and more. Johnson has always voted for further privatisation and lower public funding. Johnson is a devout Thatcherite, so this isn't surprising.

    When you fail to historicize your videos in this manner they become actively damaging. You are doing an absolute disservice to people who listen to you in good faith. Do better.

    • Madrockon

      The thing is. It happens slowly over time. It would be disastrous to do it all in one go. The real issue with the ongoing and growing privatization on the NHS is that it prioritizes profits over patient care. Patients will not get the quality care they once did in a nationalized NHS as a result. The rich companies like Virgin Healthcare care for example, that run parts of the NHS Would use pure efficiency to get patients out the door. Caring for patient and helping them feel near 100% comfortable will cost too much money in the eyes of these companies. Another thing that lies in future of our NHS, Brexit and the ongoing aggressive privatization of our healthcare system would be the possibility of a tory government being free and open to slowly swapping over to charging for a insurance based system to get different levels of care and treatment. This would be different from a fully privatized healthcare system like America's but it would be a step closer in that direction. It hasn't been said this particular approach will happen, but the fact that Brexit and the privatizing of the NHS will eventually allow for it to happen should be a voice of concern to everyone who uses the current NHS system at the least.

    I feel bad for the UK, HOWEVER, if you voted for Brexit, you should fully expect to see your friends and loved ones die broke.
    All they have to do is defund the NHS a bit and you have NO CHOICE but to seek meds and aid elsewhere.
    Also, expect some laws that make it harder for you to buy your meds from the EU, the US is big on that.
