What drives Jeremy Hunt?

Jeremy Hunt seems hell bent on altercations with the medical profession. 

He avoided the conciliation ACAS as long as he possibly could.

The latest veto in a long line of provocation is personally scuppering any chances of ending the doctors strike.

Currently despite huge opposition from the junior doctors he is imposing new conditions upon them.

He has already started on the GPs.


We have to go back six years when key members of the Tory party including Jeremy Hunt (and Michael Gove and many others) published two books.  Both books call for the NHS to be replaced by a new system of health provision in which people would pay money into personal health accounts, which they could then use to shop around for care from public and private providers. Those who could not afford to save enough would be funded by the state.

How why do they want to demolish the NHS? The answer is simple and all too usual. GREED.

Many (and it's not clear exactly how many) members of both houses of parliament have ties into private healthcare firms.

Key Facts of interests in healthcare
The research looking into Lords and MPs connections to private healthcare through the register of interests is complete. Below are listed some of the key findings. Research into the murky and dangerous Health and Social Care bill is ongoing and more facts will be added here as and when they arise.

Already the NHS is forced to contract out much of its work to private companies.  Following Hunt's efforts many of the already hacked off junior doctors will resign.  This will force the NHS to employ contract doctors from private healthcare companies.

But where will the unemployed ex NHS doctors go?  Many will join these private healthcare companies.  But now their primary function is to make money for their employers - not to tend the sick.  And who are their employers?  And/or their friends and family.

It's all about making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Rich people don't need an NHS.  They can make money out of sick people. 

There was a time when people would stand
They'd fight for their rights.
They'd march hand in hand
Before the big sleep
Well planned and designed
Turned lions to sheep
There was a time
