Tom Watson MP says "The NHS is not for sale"

West Bromwich West MP Tom Watson penned an article titled "The NHS is not for sale" in the Mirror.

Tom starts his article by saying:

The NHS is not for sale. Let me repeat that because David Cameron doesn’t seem to be listening. The NHS is NOT for sale.

His latest wheeze is to back an EU trade deal which threatens our health service and everything it stands for.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) has been described by War on Want as an ‘assault’ on society.

This potential treaty with the US could essentially mean more NHS privatisation. It would allow American health giants to bid for NHS contracts then sue for millions if the government tries to ditch them.

And it’s yet another example that we can’t trust Cameron to tell us the truth. No mention was made by him of the sell-off when he was out begging for votes during the 2010 general election.
The rest of his article is well worth a read as it outlines the terrifying future the NHS faces if the Tories are re-elected in May 2015. The full article can be found at the link here.
