There are many layers to the #Covid19UK human catastrophe but IMO it’s all DELIBERATE @mrjamesob

Not even @BorisJohnson is so ignorant that he can’t understand the seriousness of what is currently unfolding.

The crux is - HE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN!

If you were looking for the perfect foil for the #BrexitShambles & #NHSPrivatisation in one fell swoop AND you wanted to divert attention from the cronyism & corruption being uncovered every single day….you’d create as much chaos, fear & desperation as possible….
2/
….carefully positioning your scapegoats (the EU/drs/nurses/teachers/refugees….

You’d allow #COVIDDisinformation to run riot, including from the @UKHSA (& conveniently replace #PHE), whilst churning out a #COVIDisOver narrative through a compliant media.

I did this in May '20
And wanted to see how much anger was justified now,
All of it.
I should have been angrier

Thread @BorisJohnson / @Conservatives #Covid19UK corruption:

(Thank you @PoliticsJOE_UK
I was banned from Twitter for sharing @CraftDRap video when you made this)
" @BorisJohnson Johnson misled parliament over the publication of coronavirus contracts, a court order appears to show."

*Misled = lied.

If you're wondering why the British Government is breaking the UK Health, Energy and Education sectors, this is why..

The Conservative Government, led by Margaret Thatcher introduced the Gas Act 1986, which led to the #ToryPrivatisation of British Gas.

In April 2021, British Gas changed the contractual terms for thousands of workers. Those who did not accept were told to leave.

The Conservative Party is defunding University Education by cutting the threshold at which graduates begin to repay their tuition and maintenance loans by £2Bn.

The National Union of Students called it "simply astounding"

I call it astoundingly simple. #ToryCorruption funding🤷‍♂️ Free Education

"Why are you angry Sarah?"

I'll show you shall I?

Thread:

@VP admitting wars have been over oil,
Soon they'll be over water...

Saying it so casually..
Like America didn't destroy half the world with their genocidal oil wars,

The "news" are silent
#Iraq #Libya #Syria #China
No comment needed.
BBC casually admitting that they've been lying for 10 yrs

We are a monetarily sovereign nation & cannot go bankrupt.

Austerity
-Which was never an economic need, it was/is an ideology

Has killed at least 150,000 souls in this very rich country,

Our focus today is PFI - a.k.a Private Finance Initiatives. Today, PFIs drain an average of £2 billion from NHS Trust budgets every year. How exactly? 🤔 Here’s a little history…
Initially launched by the Conservative government in 1992, and expanded enthusiastically by the Labour government in 1997, PFIs were a method of financing public infrastructure projects via private partners. They allowed...
the government to defer public spending (albeit at a much higher cost in the long run given the debt repayments) - in effect creating a mortgage on the public sector. PFIs were used to finance a range of projects including schools & parts of the London Underground, but where…

Today we’re focusing on MPs - the only way we’ll #ScrapNHSBill is if enough of them speak out. So we wanted to start the day with a big **thank you** to the 30 MPs who’ve stood up for the NHS so far by expressing their interest in starting an All Party Parliamentary Group on…

It's been 269 weeks since Boris Johnson told us we could afford a new hospital every week if we voted to Leave the EU

In 2016 there were 1922 hospitals in the UK, down to 1910 by 2018.

That's 12 less

35% of those hospitals are private and rising.

#NHSPrivatisation #ToryLiars
From 2016 to 2018, after Vote Leave told us Brexit would give us 104 new hospitals in savings in 2 years...

..we lost 12 🤦

#ToryLiars #NewHospitals #SajidJavidResign #BorisJohnson
statista.com/statistics/949…
While the Tories are talking about new hospitals but we aren't seeing any.. maybe there are some in those 1910 hospitals..

Because only 1250 are #NHS hospitals.

Which means 34.5% are private. Maybe they meant a new *private* hospital a week after Brexit.

As #KeepingTheReceipts week 14 draws to a close, the long-term ramifications of Brexit and cuts to public services, including the NHS, continue to be felt across the UK, and MPs and Lords face renewed scrutiny over their financial dealings. THREAD:
1. The week kicked off with former PM David Cameron once again taking centre stage, after it emerged that he pocketed $10m before finance company Greensill’s collapse, with his spokesperson calling his remuneration a “private matter”
2. Hard-right lobby group, the Institute of Economic Affairs, lost a court battle over it being described as such following a conversation between @PeterKGeoghegan and LBC presenter @mrjamesob, focusing on their opaque funding.

As we conclude #KeepingTheReceipts week 10, cronyism once more takes centre stage after days of new revelations uncovering VIP contracts, donors/political allies elevated to key positions and the Tories pushing through plans to accelerate #NHS privatisation.

Let’s dive in:
1. On Monday Sue Gray, a key witness who played a major role in granting Greensill Capital formal access to Whitehall, was blocked from giving evidence to the PACAC by the Cabinet Office and Michael Gove
2. The same day, it emerged that Cameron had taken a salary of more than $1m a year for just 25 days work, more than $40,000 per day

The Health and Care Bill

* Scraps Gov responsibility to Healthcare
* Extends waiting time from 18 to 52 weeks
* Lets Tory Ministers control local NHS spending
* Makes #NHSPrivatisation certain

Act now

RT #ScrapNHSBill to MPs to stop #ToryCorruption #SaveTheNHS for our children The Conservative Party is trying to privatise our NHS by vot
Boris Johnson's #Covid_19 policy poses a 'danger to the World', international scientists warn. We have lost 152,856 of our loved ones.

And now the Conservative Party are trying to bring in #NHSPrivatisationBill. It's so close. After its third reading it will become law. Act now.
We spent £37 Billion on #TestandTrace and Tory MPs are going to #DeleteTheApp to avoid pre-holiday quarantine.

Our own MPs. Who are passing a law for #NHSPrivatisation, who won't give NHS workers a #NHSPay15 pay rise but just clap.

They will put our NHS under greater pressure.

A thread

"Did you vote Tory? This is what you've got coming up -

1) Photo ID to vote in general elections.
But isn't that fair, you say? Well no, it isn't. First voter ID fraud is almost non-existent. Last time there was just ONE conviction and one warning issued for ID fraud.

2/12
So why are the government so keen? Simple, it's a highly effective form of voter suppression. Around a quarter of voters do not have either a passport or driving licence. In trials hundreds of voters have been turned away from polling stations.

#NHSprivatisation has been creeping into the NHS for 40 years. Understanding the past is vital to plan for the future. Here’s a timeline of some of the key moments we’re sharing with MPs today
1980s: The internal market. Meant to create competition & increase efficiency, instead it caused admin costs to soar. From 5% in the mid-70s to 14% by 2003, according to a study by York University.
1992: Private Finance Initiatives. Used to build new hospitals, PFIs plunged the NHS into a sea of debt & we’re still paying them off. Buying out PFI contracts would cost £25-33bn but since repayments are set to reach £82bn - this would be a massive saving of public money...

1) At a US Trade Representative hearing on negotiating priorities for a US-UK trade agreement, the largest US drug industry group expressed strong criticisms of the UK’s pharmaceutical price negotiation system. #NHS #NHSPrivatisation #nhsnotforsale

2) It claimed that “the UK operates a health technology assessment system that significantly undervalues innovative medicines” and argued that US-UK trade agreement negotiations “provide an important opportunity” #NHS #NHSPrivatisation Image

We’ve made a video 🎬

No spin lines
No empty slogans

Just the FACTS

From #nhs workers of what we’ve seen happen to #ourNHS over the past few years

The #ToriesTrackRecord speaks for itself

Please share
#FactsNotSpin #NHScrisis

Thread ⬇️
1️⃣ FUNDING

These promises of “extra spending” we hear every year never materialise

The reality: An NHS underfunded by by 30% since 2010

That’s 30 BILLION / year short

The recent ‘cash injection’ promised by the Tories, is STILL under what the 4% needed to stop further decline
2️⃣STAFFING

Dangerous staffing shortages across the NHS

40,000 nurses
10,000 Hospital DRs
7000 GPs

For years the govt have been warned about the worsening shortages

Their response:

Visa caps
Nursing bursary cut
Training budgets cut
Imposing unfair contracts on Junior DRs
