A number of Toxic Tories were perceived as potentially damaging to the Tory election campaign.
Michael Gove and Grant Shapps, for example were kept well out of the limelight, during the Tory campaign, and appeared only after the polls were closed.
Some Tories just cannot fail to espouse or represent the real and the more unpalatable Tory values. Let’s face it, to get elected, all politicians are required to be two-faced to secure those all important floating voters.
David Cameron has been so keen to show his nice caring face to the electorate particularly with regard to the NHS.
So the last thing he needed was Daniel Hannan reminding the electorate of actual Tory policy so carefully disguised and denied at every opportunity by the Prime Minister..
And yes, the most Toxic Tory of them all, Daniel Hannon, MEP appeared on the TV screens the very moment the polls were closed.
Please compare and contrast what Daniel Hannan MEP said in order to market his book denigrating the NHS to a US audience, and the contrary published evidence.
- American healthcare outcomes are 27th out of the 34 industrialised OECD countries.
- The NHS has been declared the best National healthcare system by the Commonwealth Fund, a respected Washington-based foundation.
- The same study also ranked healthcare provision in the US as the worst of the 11 countries it looked at.
- The same study also found that American healthcare is the worst at saving the lives of people who fall ill.
- The US spend three times as much per capita on healthcare than the United Kingdom.
American Healthcare is the most costly per capita in the entire world due to market forces which perversely and ironically drive up the cost of American health care.
Prime Minister David Cameron has described Daniel Hannon's views as "eccentric" and ignored calls to expel Hannon from the Tory party.
Yes, The NHS is the most efficient Healtcare provider on the planet, the best value for money, and the most likely to keep you alive, so why are the Tories so determined to find fault with it.
The election is not over.
