‘The NHS is not on the table’: Boris Johnson denies Labour claims


This is a complete diversion that
the NHS under no circumstances will be on the table for negotiation for sale. Look at what we’re doing with the NHS,
we’re funding it massively. The reason we can fund it massively is
because we believe as one nation conservatives, this is a new government with a new approach. We believe in putting big sums now into
the NHS and sustainably for the future. But we also believe in driving the long term
growth of the UK economy. And that’s why we’re making sensible investments
in such things as satellite technology, because those are the growth areas
of the future. I want to see a dynamic, flourishing
UK economy enabling us to fund the NHS for the long term. That’s what this one nation government
is all about. We are absolutely resolved that there
will be no sale of the NHS, no privatisation. The NHS is not on the table in any way. – Not from patents? In no way. The NHS is in no way on the table,
in no aspect, whatever. And this, as I say, is continually brought
up by the Labour party as a diversionary tactic from the difficulties they are encountering,
particularly over the problem about leadership on antisemitism and then the great vacuity
about their policy on on Brexit.
