Letter on NHS spending published in The Times, December 15th 2014

“Sir, Of course just profiteering is ‘bad’ (letter, Dec 12). But worse is accepting public ownership without fiscal restraint – otherwise raising taxes simply to pay doctors and nurses wages equivalent to those of footballers would qualify in Williams’ naive dichotomy as a laudable ‘public investment’.
Privatisation was partly conceived to stop trade union leaders such as Arthur Scargill and Mick McGahey from holding the Treasury to ransom”.
