"On TTIP and the NHS, they are trying to bamboozle us"

The TTIP trade treaty talks re-open in Brussels this week. We should not be reassured by the convenient 'leak' of a private letter between key TTIP advocates claiming the treaty poses no threat to the NHS. (This is part of a series (keyword: 'neoliberal deception') to show typical neoliberal tactics that are being used successfully to strip countries of democracy and public services as part of its global privatization agenda. Mistake #1 assuming they play by rules of any kind.)

Britons, GATS was the missing piece Jeremy Corbyn likely couldn't tell you about two months ago, Similarly with Bernie Sanders, it seems he won't tell us this missing piece either I really would rather not think that he'd rather let Biden win the Dem nomination and then lose to Trump. BTW, without leaving GATS, Biden cannot fix healthcare, his hands will be tied by GATS..

It explains the all important dirty 1990s deal that both leaders can't seem to get the heart to tell you both about,. Way back in the 1990s, both the Labour and Democratic Parties were run by neoliberals - and they and their oppositions joined together to sell both countries out.

Jed Jones, 28, and his wife Liu pan, a British Chinese Couple, married five years, together for seven fled Wuhan on an evacuation flight,

Now they are getting told that having their baby in the UK could expose them to a $10,000 cost. Since they have been married so long, shouldn't Liu pan be eligible for UK permanent residency and eventually citizenship? What about their baby, who will likely be born in the UK? WTF? I think I am beginning to understand that there remain some deep seated differences, not so far removed from the ones in the past, why the US revolted, seriously. SHAME on the Tory Party. Healthcare should be a human right. I suppose they are lucky its not the US where a difficult pregnancy can cost in some cases, >$280,000 if a woman is "self-insured" (uninsured). This is a good example of why healthcare needs to be free. The UK's NHS would be in a different category and would not be being forced to suffer this "death of a thousand cuts" (no pun intended) if the UK had been smart enough to follow the rules it itself helped write and abolished commercial for profit health insurance in the UK for rich people BEFORE it joined the WTO efective January 1, 1995. Whoever was PM then shares responsibility with our Bill Clinton for this accursedness . Only if their NHS had not been a public option, and pre-existed the WTO, could the UK's NHS have avoided its 25 year long ordeal of cuts as its gradually privatized in accordance with the WTO rules. Leaving the EU and attempting to re-enter the WTO as a separate entity likely will require they make the UK conformant with the rules and result in the loss of the portions that don't conform, basically everything, *sigh* See the Skala paper- the first link in the external links directory for a list Oops!
