Boris Johnson can’t be honest with people but can’t hide from truth of NHS cuts – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on Boris Johnson being confronted by a parent at Whipps Cross Hospital and telling him there was “no press” there when they were being filmed by TV cameras, said:

“Boris Johnson simply can’t be honest with people.

“He can make as many phoney announcements on the NHS as he likes but he can’t hide from the truth, or from patients.

“The Tories have plunged the health service into crisis through years of cuts and privatisation and the Prime Minister can’t run from the consequences this has had for patient care.

“You can’t trust the Tories because, as Johnson’s top adviser admits, they don’t care about our NHS.”
