Richard Branson supported drug salesman Owen Smith for the Labour
that ridiculous story during the “chicken coup” leadership challenge by
Angela Eagle and then Owen Smith against the wishes of the Labour
membership? Virgin wouldn’t release
the CCTV footage that would have proved what really happened.
Care already operated 250 NHS and social care services and had a turnover
of £40.38 million in the financial year ending 2015. They wanted to be sure that the leaders of
the main political parties would not threaten their ongoing privatisation
of the NHS.
Care had paid no tax in the UK for the previous five years.
Tories, Lib Dems, UKIP and Owen Smith have all stated their support for the privatisation
of the NHS (whatever they say now).
Why else would Richard Branson have supported Owen Smith? Well, there’s also avoiding the
renationalisation of the railways, but the NHS is the real prize for
corporations like Virgin.
