Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn cannot be trusted to privatise the National Health Service, entrepreneur Richard Branson has warned.
The millionaire and tax exile told the Daily Mail: “Jeremy Corbyn can’t be trusted to hand over large chunks of the NHS to the private sector in a way that is maximally profitable to investors. Entrepreneurs face going out of business if we are prevented from devouring the NHS.”
“Take Virgin Health, for example. Despite paying no tax on our massive profits because we’re based in a tax haven, Virgin Health could see a significant reduction in the taxpayer funded profits that are needed to maintain my extravagant lifestyle, unless Britain continues to elect hard right prime ministers.”
“How I long for the days when Labour had a Thatcherite warmonger for a leader, who was happy to sell the family silver to spivs like me.”
