Unite has called David Cameron’s attempts to position the Tories as the party of the NHS a ‘sick joke’
Unite general secretary, Len McCluskey said: “David Cameron’s double talk on the NHS is a sick joke. The Tories are not the party of the NHS, they are the party that sold the NHS.
“The Prime Minister promised no top down reorganisation of the NHS but billions of pounds are being squandered on a reorganisation that has already handed 70 per cent of NHS contracts to the private sector. David Cameron did not have a mandate to sell-off our NHS – no one voted for it.
“Money the Tories are claiming to protect, is being handed over to privateers that put profits before people.
“If the PM cares so much about the NHS why has he refused to commit to protecting it from the EU-US trade agreement called TTIP, which would mean the irreversible privatisation of our health?
“When it comes to our health the Tories are wolves in sheeps’ clothing. They can’t be trusted.”
