Labour's PFI review could save the NHS billions of pounds

Comment

So simplistic. Public sector debt has to shoot up without PFI and similar schemes let alone the COST to pay them out. GP cost rent was the first PFI which improved so many surgeries without adding to national debt. Higher public debt means higher interest rates in the end, or use Labour's favoured scheme to print money, which is so last decade as a solution. In the end it leads to inflation, as shown clearly in Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so we all pay. Printing money only worked recently because everyone else was in recession, the inflation was in capital costs as in house prices to the delight of the chattering classes. It wont work again. There is so much other waste in the NHS to deal with.
