    Tory coalition blood money.......

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 05 Mar 2011, 12:15 pm

    I have always known that the Tories are driven by the free-market dogma to the ultimate levels as many Tory governments of the past have tried to privatise just about every task that is performed by the state on our behalf. Some of these privatisations were fairly good ones but now we are seeing this dogmatic stance driving them to privatise anything and everything that is not nailed down.

    HERE...is their latest and most despicable of all of their privatisation plans:

    The privatisation of the blood donor system

    We've just learned that the Government is planning to let big business profit from blood donations.

    It's almost unbelievable - almost.

    Up and down the country, thousands of men and woman give blood each week. They don't do it for selfish reasons. They do it for friends, neighbours - and for people they will never know. By giving blood they do something amazing and save countless lives.

    Anyone who has either needed blood, or has a loved one who has, will know that feeling of gratitude.

    But this Government doesn't care about that selflessness - that's why they're planning to literally privatise your blood. By letting big business marketise blood donations, the Tories will shatter the virtuous link between donors and recipients.

    We can't allow this to happen - we need to rally around a simple but profound message: Our blood is not for sale.

    In response to these plans we're launching a national petition - and, Paul R, I want your name to be one of the first on it. Sign our petition and demand that David Cameron steps in and stops this dangerous plan:

    Chances are that if you haven't benefitted from someone else's amazing generosity, someone you know and love has. Often, we owe our loved ones' very survival to a blood donation from a complete stranger.

    Blood donors give blood so that doctors and surgeons are able to save lives. They don't give blood so that private corporations can make a profit.

    We are talking about life and death, about an incredible selfless act. Money and profit margins have no place in this transaction.

    This is a step too far. We cannot allow this to happen.

    I need you to act now. Act for yourself. Act for a loved one. We are all under threat if the Tories can get away with this - please sign our petition now:

    Yes Angie, it sure is "awful".

    It now appears that the Tories value nothing as sacrosanct in their dogmatic drive to turn everything this country and it's people own over to the profit-making private sector.

    Someone or some entity needs to draw a line under this obscene desire for profits at all costs.

    My great hope is that not before too long this cruel coalition will fall apart and we - the people - can maybe then start to put the state-owned systems back together again.
