So several years ago we had one US company that terminated a contract to run a UK NHS hospital because it wasn't making any money, this week another private company lost a contract to run a NHS hospital and now a third company has decided to pull out of a contract to provide Homebirth care because it wasn't making enough money.

And the Tories still think privatising the NHS is the best way to go.

If only little girls still said rhymes while playing jump rope, this jingle could last for centuries.  Good one, @El Jeffo!

Nigel Farage has enthusiastically praised Donald Trump’s “go back” comments, directed at four congresswomen of colour.

The US president’s remarks were widely condemned as racist after he told Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, to return to the “broken and crime infested places from which they came”.

All of the Democrats, known as the Squad, are American citizens. Three of the four were born in the country.

Ms Omar, the fourth, arrived in the US as a child refugee.

The president described the women as people”who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world”.

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?” he asked.

Despite the significant controversy generated by the remarks, Mr Farage said the comments were shrewd.

“I thought, ‘Dear, oh dear, oh dear’. You realise, 48 hours on, it was genius because what’s happened is the Democrats gather round the Squad, which allows him to say, ‘Oh look, the Squad are the centre of the Democratic Party’,” he said.

“He’s remarkably good at what he does,” Mr Farage added, in an interview with The Times.

“He does things his way. But he is a remarkably effective operator.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had condemned Mr Trump’s remarks as “racist” at the time, challenging Boris Johnson to do so too during the Conservative leadership contest.

Mr Johnson, now the prime minister, refused to, but did describe the comments as “totally unacceptable”.

AOC is a white supremacist ...

 

at least according to the geniuses in this thread.

 

I think you are misunderstanding the whole "OK sign is a secret supremacy sign" affair.

Britain's billionaires 'prepare to flee country amid fears Jeremy Corbyn will be next Prime Minister'

 

Quote

Billionaires and multimillionaires are said to be making plans to protect their fortunes, which include moving their assets and businesses overseas, in preparation of tax increases should the Labour leader enter Downing Street.

 

According to The Sunday Times, which today publishes its annual Rich List, individuals could take up to £1 trillion out of Britain amid fears over what has been dubbed 'Corbygeddon'.
