US wants access to NHS in post-Brexit deal, says Trump ally

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/02/us-wants-access-to-nhs-in-post-brexit-deal-ambassador-to-uk-says

The US will want business access to the NHS in any post-Brexit trade deal, the US ambassador has said, prompting anger from politicians and campaigners before Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK this week.

Woody Johnson, who is a close friend of the US president, said every area of the UK economy would be up for discussion when the two sides brokered a trade deal.

Asked if the NHS was likely to form part of trade negotiations, Johnson told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “I think the entire economy, in a trade deal, all things that are traded would be on the table.” Asked if that specifically meant healthcare, he said: “I would think so.”



By “up for discussion” they clearly mean raided.

3. It should be the other way around...q

we should be buying into the NHS, or at least copying their system, instead of trying to commercialize their medical system

4. oh, it's worse than that.

They don't care about "raiding" it, they want to totally destroy it so they get the serf/baron social model they are pursuing in the US and that's already in place in Russia.

5. I hope the Brits are smart enough to send the Con packing on this one.

Destroying U.S. healthcare should be a big enough notch on his belt.
