the Oligarchs always look for new places to rob, steal and destroy. A few years from now they will deliver Obamacare to the British public. No more NHS. “ If they like their doctor they will get to keep him”. Obama can add another section to his library about Obamacare being adopted by the British.

I guess Trump isn’t satisfied with merely fucking up our late “great” country. Nope. He’s
got to sail the ocean blue because there are also plenty of Brits available to screw too. As was mentioned above, American capitalism’s isn’t satisfied with the destruction they caused here, they have to spread their greed like a metastatic cancer to other developed countries so they can regress just like us. By the way, I came across a Counterpunch article the other day regarding the current impeachment proceedings that I thought was interesting and certainly bears consideration and thought. Enjoy.

Under capitalism, even a “socialised” health service has government budgets imposed upon it.

What is required is a SOCIALIST health service.

Maybe others have, but I’ve not heard or read any mention of the fact that DT is apparently aiding those who would privatize the health service of a foreign country - while in office. The same $adism there as here, and it seems to pass without criticism.

The funding has to be taken from the majority.

Maybe Trump and Prince Andrew can get together and discuss their good old times with their mutual friend Jeffrey Epstein.

Of course the queen is welcoming him with open arms.

Ironic that the original Tea Party codgers were the one’s with signs: KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE. I have not seen and signs that say: KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY OBAMACARE.

As long as big insurance controls your access to health care: YOU ARE PRIVITIZED!

And the NHS will be privatized, just like Medicaid was privatized under Obama and Medicare is now more or less a front for HMOs. Nothing progressive is coming folks. very hard to gin up enthusiasm when the game was over years ago.
Single issue voter, WE MUST RAISE TAXES ON THE BILLIONAIRES.

Do they really believe Johnson and the Tories claim that they will leave the NHS alone?
When it comes to making more money for them and corporations— they all lie.
Stop voting for these vultures

They have PR flacks to handle smearing the Clintons with that story. As stunning as this is to accept, there are millions of Americans who actually believe Hillary Clinton was behind Epstein’s death just like they believe she off’d Vince Foster.

All the progressive collectives are being dismantled one by one worldwide. And the corporate press will facilitate the theft of the British “left eye and convince you (Brits) you are the better for it.” to paraphrase me old Irish Grand mamá.
As long as the manufacturing is in asian sweatshops and the money keeps flooding China, the wealthy will continue to cut and cut and cut at home. You don’t want to raise taxes on the Oligarchs so the peasants can keep buying Chinese shit do you?

We had free or almost free Higher education in the US from the 50’s through the mid 70’s until the Fascists did this crap.

While I’m no conspiracy theorist, it’s a little more than disturbing that may people who have have past ((dirty) dealings with the Clintons have found themselves dead, disgraced, in jail, or a combination of the three.
Epstein’s death in particular was incredibly convenient for the Clintons (and a whole lot of other America politicos and captains of industry)
The Clintons have always matched on a road of bones.

That’s our little lapdogs in England for ya. Just when you think, nobody could possible disgrace themselves more than the Americans, the British step up to prove us wrong.

Sing a song of sixpence,

A pocket full of rye.

Four and twenty blackbirds,

Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened

The birds began to sing;

Wasn’t that a dainty dish,

To set before the king.

The king was in his counting house,

Counting out his money;

The queen was in the parlour,

Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,

Hanging out the clothes,

When down came a blackbird

And pecked off her nose…

Or maybe the last four lines:

The maid was in the garden,
Picking at her nose,
When out came Trumpty Dumpty
And pulled off her clothes.

(Why is the beast invited into the Queen’s house?)

If the polls are correct, that the majority of Brits support B. Johnson and the conservatives is a real headscratcher.

Why the heck would they want to privatize their healthcare - look at the US you people.

Ever wonder why exactly? I think it is the history of theft, genocide and slavery. Has to be a very shaky ground upon which to erect your nation especially when you claim a “christian” ethos. Why else all the proselytizing if you are not incredibly insecure? Their true religion always has been wealth accumulation and all the vices that ensue.
