North Shropshire Conservative candidate’s attacks on the NHS

I’m not sure the Conservatives really thought through their selection of a Birmingham lawyer with a track record of criticising the NHS for the North Shropshire by-election:

Neil Shastri-Hurst criticised NHS in now-deleted blog posts

The contrast with Helen Morgan is striking.

As Daisy Cooper said:

People will be disgusted that he’s said that the NHS is not worth fighting for, and that NHS workers on the frontline of the pandemic are not heroes.

Families in North Shropshire deserve a strong local champion who stands up for better health services, not a Conservative who doesn’t even seem to believe in a publicly funded NHS that is accessible to all – Liberal Democrat Helen is that person.

I’m not sure other Conservative MPs are helping their own party much either:

  1. Re the NHS reforms.I hear that in the 42 regions that each will have a private company on them to ‘discuss what happens in those regions.Is this the foot in the door of privatisation?In the US if a hospital cannot pay its way the hospital closes and patients are moved elsewhere to a ‘profitable’sight,that hospital closes.Is this the way the Conservatives are going.? Is this what the UK voter wants?The NHS bill should be discussed more about its consequences.

  2. By hook or crook the Tories will privatise as much of the NHS as they can.
    This candidate is only openly saying what is being talked about because he is probably politically naive.
