The problem is of course the NHS has been for sale for a long time.

Labour got into bed with a number of the companies who would love to take over, UNUM Provident has been splashing the cash in our Universities even employing the people who brought in the welfare reforms, like Professor Mansell Alyward.

UNUM Provident are now set in stone in the UK and of course needs to be as they got their backside kicked in America.

But when you see how much private operations and private treatment goes on within the NHS it's pretty shocking.

I had a heart attack in my GP's he phoned up the hospital for an appointment with a heart consultant, it came back six weeks, my GP said can you pay and I said yes, the ambulance arrived I was taken to hospital saw the consultant under went an operation within hours, my GP said you would have been dead in six week.

Why was I not rushed into hospital by ambulance anyway, well you have to phone NHS direct, then your GP, then NHS direct , by the time you have finished you have hung your self with the phone line anyway

Great rap. Especially from a bin man.

On my blog I have compared it to another socially aware rap song of our times. Wham! Rap.

There are reports that Mr Lansley is set to release a rap response. Sample lyrics include

‘(Yo) I want to improve every hospital facility / The Bill that I’ve put forward will increase accountability / All you silly doctors, who doubt my credibility / This Bill will put patients at the heart of the NHS not just as beneficiaries of care but as participants in shared decision-making.’

Catchy.

It may or may not be released today.
