Government announces £20bn increase to NHS funding


The interesting mentality of the PM is : (1) She could not see (or refuses to see) that one important reason why NHS is in such a state , is because politicians kept politicising NHS with all kinds of bureaucracy to uphold their political agendas. So she is now willing to use the NHS once again for sustaining her ‘ Brexit is Brexit’ argument because there will be a financial reward for this money to fund future NHS (2) The ‘Leave’ camp survived the ‘lie’ that three hundred million odd pound could come to NHS per week after Brexit by winning the referendum. So the prime minister really thinks a ‘double jeopardy’ can be applied here by lying to people again ? (3) The reality is if and only if this government does rubber stamp that one way to fund this 3.4% increase per annum funding is by raising tax, NHS is here to stay for the next 30 years . Because if even the well perceived anti-NHS party has to revert to tax rise to solve this NHS conundrum, privitisation of NHS has no prospect to occur . So using the Brexit’s ‘magic refund’ from EU to make up this 20 billion pound funding is a political insurance. Watch this space....
