This cant be true, Boris promised £350million per week extra for the NHS.  Thats why half the population voted for brexit.

Its already sold off .. I went to my local one this morning, the patients outside on gurneys, doctors and staff sent home, Operation Theatre already converted to a casino and billboards of Trump everywhere

Except he didn't, and we didn't. Apart from that, spot on.

If you know this you have a long beard, wear flowing white robes and have two scars on your hands. Can you tell me the lottery winning numbers for Friday please?

No names, no pack drill, but I just received a call from a private healthcare company I used to use before I retired, wondering if I'd like to rejoin because, amongst other things.... "With this new government we don't even know it the NHS will exist soon".

Name and shame please - Fraud companies like this need to be exposed, not hidden.

...or maybe its just not true (project fear again)

Damn it. This means we'll see NHS privatisation in this term of snatcherites.

I hoped Boris will think with his head about NHS.

A private health company pushing for more business isn't a sure sign we'll get NHS privatisation. Of course they'll want to play on any little bit of uncertainty there.

Project Fear worked really well before for the Remain team. The only issue with their argument was that there wasn't enough fear!

Or enough calling the other team thick, racists, unknowing of what they voted for etc.

That someone thinks that by posting a company's sales patter here is in any way influential is quite confusing. Influential to what as well? A 3rd People's Vote?

Do you mean me? 

I just thought it amusing. Nothing more, nothing less.

I don't like TB, but sometimes he does speak cross-party - and this is one of those occasions

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50829352

"Labour "pursued a path of almost comic indecision" over Brexit during the election and "alienated both sides of the debate", Tony Blair has said.

In a speech in London, the ex-PM said he believed the party could have kept much of the vote in traditional Labour areas under a different leadership.

The situation was "made impossible by failure to take a clear position and to stick to it", Mr Blair said.

"The result has brought shame on us. We let our country down," he added."

B. Liar and his goons were the ones responsible for pushing the party into adopting the 2-way compromise! Had Jezza been allowed to follow his europhobic instincts Labour would have become a party of Leave.

And when they were closer to that - they stood in 2017 with a promise to honour the referendum result after all - they did rather better than in 2019 (I don't think the perception of Jeremy Corbyn was quite as extreme then either). That said I wouldn't rule it out that they might've done rather better in 2019 if they had been officially Remain  (although maybe not the point of revoke), instead of putting off both sides.

Personally, I'd have loved to have seen a Left Leave option on the table. It would have confirmed Jezza as a man of principle not just another machine politician calculating the odds.

We havn't left yet and the economic effects are as predicted, although somewhat softened by the billions printed to sooth the pain. 

Sure, the message of 'there will be economic consequences, depending of the type of Brexit' was ignored by the leave contingent, however it still applies. Where leavers thick for ignoring the message? We can let them decide if and when it starts to affect them.

Most likely it will be by stealth. After a check up at my local NHS dentist I was told the next appointment for NHS treatment for a filling was three months. They also do private dentistry there. When I asked what the difference between the two was, I was told private offered a superior service.

Absolutely - not been mentioned much. And JC is not the kind of person to say "told you so"

It would have saved Jo Swinson's bacon but hard to see how it would have improved the outcome for Labour.

True. But Labour may still have lost because some of the remain vote may have moved to the Lib Dems. Labour was trapped between a rock and a hard place with Brexit. Let the Conservative Party own it and any negative consequences or otherwise that come out of it.

I've already given up on NHS dentistry. It's sub standard when compared to what I can have done privately.

I just have to get used to the idea of paying for all healthcare as well.

Even with the benefit of hindsight I don't know which way would have been best re. the GE.

The English working classes voted for Boris.  They have made their bed

Now the b4sta4ds need to lie in it for 5 years.

I think the majority of them voted for Labour. I'm not even sure a majority of them voted for Conservatives or Brexit in the "red wall" but when you include young precariats in London and other remain areas I suspect Labour still a majority of the working class.

Hope Boris uses this majority to get Brexit with a deal instead of No Deal Brexit. If economy goes tits, people will ****** Tories for a generation. Meanwhile Labour will have its hen party with leftist version of Theresa May being elected. Tories are living through the golden age for their party although its not a golden age for the country.
