EU Budget increased and NHS budget dismantled
The ‘ring-fenced’ NHS budget is no more. Money is being taken out of the NHS budget, at the same time that EU contributions to the EU budget are going up. While this is happening we learn that more than 300,000 people in the United Kingdom – including 125,000 children – depend on soup kitchens to eat.
While this is happening, the mass media are busy talking about scandals and British people are literally starving. Talking about what is happening or said to be happening in other countries is an easy way to avoid talking about what is happening in Britain.
