Walgreens To Buy Up Alliance Boots

Recommended Posts

Yep boots are an example of all that was/is wrong with modern business.

In some way's I'm surprised they survive. So much more expensive than other pharmacies and similar retailers. Why do there? Are they making a load off NHS services or something?

With these permanently low interest rates (ah haha), it is who ever takes on the most debt, who will own everything.

The new company is called Walgreens Boots Alliance.

Give it time, one man will own everything - Lidyl-Tesco-Walgreen-Walmart-Boots-Alliance.

Adopt the BILLIONAIRE MINDSET today! Do no stop at owning one house, or two, you must own and control THEM ALL. All land, all the water, all the energy, all the food, all the AIR!. YOU MUST OWN THEM ALL, UNTIL YOUR LAST DYING BREATH!

They are a real copy book for our times.

Is Patricia Hewitt still a consultant for Boots?

Jan 2008 while she was still an MP....

Patricia Hewitt, who used to be the health secretary, has got herself a job at Boots the Chemist.
Patricia Hewiitt brings useful experience to her new job Not behind the counter of course, she will be an adviser to one of the biggest pharmacy led groups in the world, for about three weeks of the year.
It is easy to see why Boots would want advice from a politician who a spent a couple of years making decisions about the country's healthcare.
Under Ms Hewitt's guidance, companies like Boots were invited to bid to open GPs surgeries on their premises.
And it is not hard to see why having escaped the red box treadmill, former ministers are eager to top up their MPs' earnings, and keep a foothold in something other than their constituency business.
Ms Hewitt tells me her constituency is her first priority, but she will also have to juggle another new job, at Cinven which, she tells me, is one of the biggest corporate buy-out groups in the world.
They also happen just recently to have paid nearly £1.5bn to buy 25 hospitals from private healthcare group BUPA.
Ms Hewitt was always a keen advocate of the NHS using private sector facilities.
