To be honest, I hate rap music. It makes me really agitated. Well, maybe it’s supposed to make you agitated.
This, though, is rapping with a difference.
It is attacking Andrew Lansley. He is the Health Secretary in the UK’s coalition government. Probably the majority of people who have studied the new Health and Social Care Bill going through parliament just now are against it since they interpret it as the demise of the NHS and the birth of UK healthcare controlled by multinationals whose main aim will be profit.
Many of the population including the medical profession don’t really know what is going on. Probably a lot of Members of Parliament don’t really know what’s going on either. Those who do know what’s going on don’t seem to be able to stop it.
But here is Mr Joe Public tackling the government on this issue in the way he knows best. This Mr Joe Public is a 22 year old bin-man who calls himself MC NxtGen. The rappers real name is Sean Donnelly and this is what he thinks:
“”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.”
He doesn’t fancy this so he is telling the young generation about it.
The Guardian has an article on this:
COUNTRY : UK
If like me, you can’t understand rap music, here are the words:
Andrew Lansley, greedy,
Andrew Lansley, tosser,
the NHS is not for sale you grey haired manky codger. (x4)
So the budget of the PCTs, he wants to hand to the GP’s,
Oh please. Dumb geeks are gonna buy from any willing provider,
get care from private companies.
They saw the pie and they want a piece;
Got their eyes on the P’s like mice for the cheese.
I talk truth when I ride the beat, you talk shite when you speak,
see money when you close your eyes to
So fall back — your face looks like a shrivelled up ball sack.
The stuff that you chat is bull crap, I’m sure Andy Pandy snorts crack.
Health minister, I mean sinister.
You know your public will finish ya,
is your brain really that miniature?
You’re full of crap
Give yourself an enema.
Made filthy rich by those who represent Walkers Crisps,
Mars and Pizza Hut, proved your a health slut and your always talking shit.
A hundred and thirty four pound an hour every week, that’s quite a lot of quids;
and you came to the conclusion that the food industry should be a little less strict.
Scandal disclosed that you flipped your second home.
You said your claims were within the rules, filled your pockets, took us for jokes;
so how would you cope when broke folk get ill, injured and broke,
but don’t have the dough,
to get their life back on the road, so poor die slow, and the rich take control.
(Chorus x 4)
Lansley’s white paper: “Liberating the NHS”
sets out a plan where we’ll become more like the U.S.
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.
He’s been given cash
by John Nash,
chairman of Care UK:
a private healthcare provider,
who, if they have their way,
will be the biggest beneficiaries
of conservative Lib Dem policies
to privatise healthcare and pull apart the welfare state.
These plans have been slagged by patient organisations,
charities and unions,
nursing and medical institutions.
The Royal College of GPs even joined the attack,
looked closely at the proposals
and said they were crap.
Say yes for the NHS, Andrew Lansley can suck on David Cameron’s breast.
His quest is for the rich to pay less, and the poor have to stress, it’ll be one big mess.
(Chorus x 4)
