    New Labour already began part privatisation of the NHS in 2009, and planned up to 40% to be eventually privatised.

    Include CO2 from aviation & shipping, along with our imports & exports & the UK's cut in its total carbon emissions is much nearer 10%.

    Don't fall for the spin.

    That is not a denial of the Tories wanting to sell the NHS is it?

    There is as yet no evidence of such a Tory plan - in contrast to that of Labour.

    Yet? There is only so much redacting can hide.

    The dismantling and asset stripping of the NHS continues apace.
    e.g. The Naylor review being a thinly veied fire sale of NHS assets.

    Not a whole lot of good news then. Ah well, it was worth a try.

    More reason to Brexit and then vote in a real Green Party based on green economics (as opposed to the interlopers we have now).

    Did you want them to stop borrowing and have proper austerity?

    Do you mean the sort of austerity that hits the middle classes as hard as it hits the poor?

    No. I mean less public spending over the past 9 years. I think the burden would be spread across middle class /working class (so last century) public sector workers in much the same way as it was
