ON THE SUBJECT OF WAR AND MONEY:

The Daily Mail said:

“Blair accused of taking blood money over £1m job with US bank profiting from Iraq war”

“JP Morgan is heading a consortium set to make billions as Iraq’s economy recovers from the war spearheaded by Mr Blair and U.S. President George Bush. It was chosen to run the new Trade Bank of Iraq, which has raised billions in trade guarantees by mortgaging future oil production and will make huge profits from the deals.”

EcoLogics said:

BLAIR JOINS THE PRIVATE SECTOR

“EcoLogics emerges, however momentarily, from a winter hibernation to note the breaking news that Tony Blair has taken a position as an advisor with the American bank, J P Morgan, for a cool US $ 1 million a year.”

ON THE SUBJECT OF IDENTITY CARDS AND MONEY

EcoLogics said:

“I have also noted that David Blunkett, one of the most ardent advocates of a national ID card, got a directorship with the American ID security corporation Entrust.”

ON THE SUBJECT OF HEALTH AND MONEY

EcoLogics said:

“The Financial Times suggests that Blair ‘expected to agree to “a small handful” of similar appointments with other companies in different sectors’. Here is a list of some additional ‘intersections’ that Tony Blair may wish to consider if he feels that he needs that extra bit of cash to raise his family:”

1. …………..

2. …………..

3. “A directorship in BUPA, or in any other private healthcare contractor. Blair, like Brown, was also very keen on ‘intersecting’ the NHS with private healthcare providers.”

4. ……………

“Not long after publishing the article, Smith left the BMJ for a lucrative post as chief executive of the UK subsidiary of the US health corporation UnitedHealth. There he joined its new European president, Simon Stevens, formerly adviser to every Labour health secretary, and Tony Blair, since 1997. The flow of ideas, from him and many others like him, was all one-way: from the US to the UK.

As adviser to Alan Milburn, health secretary from 1999 to 2003, Stevens and his American colleagues helped to shape the NHS Plan 2000. It promised to provide more money, doctors, nurses, beds and capacity. But in the event the funds were directed at building a new parallel system that would be owned and operated not by the people but by the private sector on behalf of shareholders.

Using the mantra of choice, the market was thus disguised. In primary care the government negotiated a new GP contract that would allow commercial companies to run GP services. There are now more than 30 corporations running GP services in England.

Hmm. The 24 hours a day 365 days a year old GP contract was not changed to help with the Work/Life Balance of GPs……..

Hmm. Was Tony Blair not the Job-share Pied Piper?

Hmm. There’s a connection between Lord Leitch, one of The Skill’s Escalator men and BUPA……..

Hmm. Maybe UnitedHealth or Kaiser Permenante might offer a lamp to brighten up the frugal retirement of UK politicians as well as their advisors……….

Maybe.

Maybe not.

We’ll see.
