Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond is going to Liverpool, having been rejected by Scots, Salmond is looking for any place to get an audience to speak.
One the latest themes by the SNP and Women for Independence scaremongering over the Scottish NHS!
Scotland’s health service will not be safe from the effects of privatisation unless a Yes vote is cast in September says Salmond.
This is a lie!
There is already private companies doing NHS work has have been for years.
Governments at Holyrood change and therefore Salmond’s guarantee that the NHS will be protected from the privatisation agenda south of the Border is worthless.
Whether independent or not only the government of the day will set policy!
Healthcare in Scotland is currently a devolved issue, controlled by Holyrood so where the NHS in England goes private which it won’t, it won’t affect Scotland because the Scottish budget is decided by the Scottish Government.
If there is an affect a mechanism exist for Westminster and Holyrood to discuss this on an official basis.
“the process of privatisation and fragmentation” of the NHS south of the Border had continued. Scotland is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with strong public finances. But under the Westminster system, cuts to spending in England automatically trigger cuts in Scotland.”
Does that mean he won’t be giving any money to Nicola Sturgeon cronies in Glasgow Southside to set up little organizations then?
Scottish Labour’s health spokesman Neil Findlay said:
“It is a mark of how desperate the First Minister has become that he is introducing the privatisation of the NHS as a campaign issue when everyone knows it is devolved to the Scottish Parliament and the Tories can’t get their hands on our hospitals and health centres.”
This was flagged up by Dr. Philipa Whitford under the guise of Women for Independence, it is low grade pap. It doesn’t have any traction in Scotland and although Salmond is now flogging the same dead horse, it will not get to its feet.
Is it a coincidence that both Salmond and Women for Independence are doing this at the same time?
I think many people would think not, co-ordinated Yes scaremongering.
Grabbing any issue and running silly stories, pathetic, today I met many strong NO voters; the tactics of fear aren’t working Salmond!
Imagine going to Liverpool to give an independence speech when they don’t have a vote!
Cock up as usual; the Nationalists have picked a poor choice as their champion!
Finally, let us remember that unpopular Nicola Sturgeon let Scots women die of cancer by failing to end the postcode lottery, the Scottish NHS isn't safe in Nationalist hands, but you don't hear a peep out of Dr. Philipa Whitford.
Sturgeon fucked that service right up!
