The Health Secretary promised: 'We’ll be letting the private sector into our hospitals, in the form of an exploding missile. Patients will then have their mounds of red-tape replaced with literal tonnes of rubble. Our medical professionals will have to dodge shrapnel 24/7 and we will expect them to wear a flak jacket in place of surgical scrubs. And if you think a shortage in NHS beds is bad, wait until you’ve experienced five years of civil war and 250,000 deaths.
‘Basically, it’s a fine line between NHS reform and a war crime.’
