Blair wasted billions of pounds sending the NHS into a black hole

Former Labour PM Blair tried to transform the health service by throwing money at it - with disastrous results. He did untold damage that we are still fighting to recover from today.

If Blair hadn’t dragged us into America’s war he would be remembered mostly for the damage he did to our hospitals and the NHS.

Blair didnt want anything to do with the NHS and handn't got a clue how it worked or what it needed. He wasted millions.

Blair and Brown promoted the PFI deals for new NHS hospitals and schools. Loads were built. Due to lax behavior on the part of the contract negotiators they were then saddled with astronomical interest and service charges. £150 to replace a light bulb for instance.

Blair and Brown were typical Labour - spend, spend, spend with no thought as to how, or who, might have to pay for it all.

The Labour Party of that time had the opposite to a Midas touch.

They gave away gold and turned everything to crap.

1.0 Thank you for your input - a welcome change from the puerile blubbering of many.

2.0 Yes, PFI was and is a disaster for all except those who were awarded the contracts.
2.1 So lucrative are these contracts they have been and continue to be Traded as Commodities.

3.0 ONE of the other downsides is that the buildings and land are only leased to the occupiers for a 25 year period. At the end of that time, the ownership will revert to the Lease Holder, lock-stock-and-barrel.

4.0 Is there nothing that the Tories and their New Labour-Blairite, lick-spittle, running dogs won't sell off to foreign investors?

I'm nor sure whether to comment on the subject of the thread or not. Someone has succumbed to madness.

When are some people going to realise that if we want our vital services, including our NHS, up and running, we have to pay for these services out of general taxation ???

BTW, dear Midsummer regulars.

You do realise, don't you, that the troll is continuing to introduce new members to the forums?

... though the theme or topic of original posts, largely, remains variations of the same, dated, political formula. (Not disimilar to this one).

The profiles have been invented. Fake pictures at the ready. Ready and waiting.

I'm tempted to think it was mainly Browne, but that's little difference, it was the same two people. It's a pity we don't have a system for making ex. prime ministers or politicians accountable for their actions or decisions, might make them think a bit first.
As an aside, I still think Blair should be prosecuted for war crimes.
