A conspiracy to destabilise the NHS.,
This review is from: The Plot Against the NHS (Paperback)
This brilliant and well-researched book reveals how the Tory-led coalition's plans to privatise and fragment the NHS had their origins with previous governments, including New Labour. The only difference being that Tony Blair was more adept at concealing New Labour's real intentions. Colin Leys & Stewart Player argue convincingly that Andrew Lansley's radical, pro-market health "reforms"(for which there was no electoral mandate) are unnecessary and that our current NHS is one of the most efficient and cost-effective in the world.
With US-based private companies queueing up to profit from the NHS, this important, eye-opening book should be read by anyone wishing to understand what politicians are really planning for our health service.

At last someone else who appreciates that it is not just the 'baby-eating' Tories who are responsible for the privatisation of health care in the UK but that Labour have also been doing their fair share. The NHS will never be saved so long as the partisan arguements persist. Once everyone appreciates it is the political class that is the problem, the better.
