Boris Johnson’s comments on the NHS alarming but not surprising – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to Boris Johnson suggesting he would impose another top-down reorganisation of the NHS, said:

“These comments are alarming but unsurprising given the hard right agenda Johnson has been putting forward.

“His tax plans will benefit the richest, he’s the biggest defender of the bankers who crashed the economy, and he’s been buddying up with Trump to sell off our NHS to US corporations.

“His comments to Tory party members about his plans for the NHS need to be clarified immediately.”
