Although TTIP is normally associated with the E.U., there’s still a risk of the U.K. trying to negotiate something similar with the U.S. after Brexit. The latest bid from Richard Branson’s Virgin Care for yet another contract with the NHS, this time for Bath and N.E. Somerset, shows how sympathetic Theresa May is to paying for profit as well as a public service. It’s the latest after years of privatisation, rail, energy, waste management, prison services, nhs services, etc. and probably no coincidence that this comes after a chat between the two of them over afternoon tea. The E.U. tried to creep up on us and now she continues the trend. It’s like an undisturbed soluble aspirin in a glass of water. Of course the privateer’s argument is it creates income tax. Well it would do if the money wasn’t a public budget in the first place.
So we’re keeping this publication from Leave.eu about TTIP, for reference. UKIP’s stance on healthcare is no problem with private health care but the NHS will remain free at the point of delivery for all Brits to use without the need for private insurance.
