If the UK votes for Brexit, Dr Liam Fox, the disgraced ex-Defence Minister responsible for getting the UK involved in conflict in Libya and Syria before being sacked for Cronyism in 2011, could become Prime Minister.
Is this really happening?
Fox & NHS
Tory Leavers now openly refer to Brexit as being our best chance of saving the NHS from privatisation.
But research has shown that most of them have big money invested in private healthcare firms.
Fox is a well known Thatcherite along with his colleagues John Redwood, John Whittingdale, and Oliver ‘Privatising the World’ Letwin.
Brexit & TTIP
TTIP is bad for the NHS as it is designed to open it up to US Health Insurance firms.
And the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission are heavily captured by the City of London Corporation. Liam Fox is right to say that it doesn’t look as though they will change path.
But it would be very dangerous to put the Brexit camp in charge of the country.
The fact that Fox thinks the City of London Corporation and the EU are not Neo-Liberal enough is a fair sign of what he has planned for the NHS.
Attempting to reform the undemocratic EU from within will be hard – but much easier than negotiating with Fox.
