I used to think that Milo Minderbinder’s comment in Jospeh Heller’s Catch 22 was both funny and satirical. “They buy my tomatoes at four cents apiece and sell them back to me the next day for five cents apiece. They make a profit of one cent apiece. I make a profit of three and a half cents apiece.” It is neither funny nor satirical, but exactly what is now taking place in our health service.
I hope you will sign this petition to oppose SERCO and all the profiteers devouring the NHS.
I speak as someone whose life has been saved more than once by the NHS. If we had already moved to a US-style healthcare system I would not be here to write this.
