The NHS safe in whose hands?

Labour’s Wes Streeting claims ‘wasteful’ NHS using winter crises as excuse for cash
Streeting then vows to reform ‘complacent’ NHS.

The fact he has the gall to say such a thing gives an indication of what his reforms will be. never mind adopting the majority privatised Singapore model he so loves…

Cash for Influence: Labour’s Top Figures Graced by Private Healthcare Donors

What is more surprising (some would argue more disappointing) is to see a cohort of extremely senior Labour Shadow Cabinet members represented. Four Labour frontbenchers reached the top 10 in the private healthcare entities and donations from those companies.

Sir Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition and a prospective Prime Minister, has found himself enriched by the tune of £157,500.00 from donors associated with the private healthcare sector. Yvette Cooper, the Shadow Home Secretary, boasts an even more substantial sum of £295,205.00. Meanwhile, Dan Jarvis, juggling his role as the Mayor of South Yorkshire, has managed to secure a handsome £137,500.00 in donations from the private health industry. As for the Shadow Secretary of State for Health, the individual who would be entrusted with overseeing the NHS under a Labour government, his pockets have been lined with an impressive £193,725.00 in contributions.

They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and indeed, these sums of money are far from inconsequential. The private healthcare sector doesn’t shell out its riches for nothing.

Total all, on just the donations to the shadow Labour front bench, it’s a staggering £783.930. When you consider each pound contributed carries the expectation of influence and favours. You can only wonder what strings may be attached to such hefty donations.

You just have to ask the same questions you do when you see a Tory get a bung…What is expected in return? Surely, it is not a gesture of goodwill or a mere act of philanthropy.

No, it is a calculated investment, an attempt to exert influence, and perhaps even to shape policy decisions to benefit their wealthy benefactors.

The future of our National Health Service hangs in the balance, and it is disheartening to witness potential leaders of our country succumbing to the allure of private healthcare donations.

Not only is it disconcerting to witness Labour’s leading figures willingly accepting substantial sums from private healthcare interests. These are individuals who should be safeguarding the principles and values of the Labour Party, defending a publicly funded, publicly provided, not-for-profit healthcare system.
