Binman rapper attacks UK health care privatization plan

The British binman rapper MC NxtGen has put together a rap video about a white paper that proposes massive privatization of the UK’s National Health System.

The track singles out UK Health Minister Andrew Lansley, who is the subject of the refrain “Andrew Lansley, greedy! Andrew Lansley, tosser.”

NxtGen raps “we’ll become more like the US / and care will be farmed out to private companies, / who will sell their service to the NHS via the GPs / who will have more to do with service purchase arrangements / than anything to do with seeing their patients.”

While well researched, the rap video is not subtle. At one point the camera focuses on a turd atop the white paper “Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS.”
