David Cameron, the Conservative leader, said Mr Hannan was wrong in his criticism of the NHS. Andrew Lansley, the Conservative shadow health secretary, accused the MEP of presenting a “negative and partial” view of the NHS in his contribution to the US debate about health care.
Conservative US Republicans opposed to President Barack Obama’s health care plans have used the NHS as an example of “socialised” medicine.Mr Hannan was in the US earlier this week and in a Fox News interview, he supported some of the Republican criticisms of the NHS.
He said: “I wouldn’t wish it on anybody. We have a system where the most salient facts of it you get huge waiting lists, you have bad survival rates and you would much rather fall ill in the US.”Daniel Hannan rebuked by Conservative leadership for attacking NHS - TelegraphGovernments traditionally do not to intervene in the domestic politics of other nations. But the Prime Minister and his Cabinet are irritated by the attacks on the NHS and the British Embassy in Washington DC has been instructed to counter “inaccuracies” about the NHS in the US media.
Hope he gets deselected next time round, he is a **** representative.
What the bloody heck is he doing on FOX news? I'm sorry. Who are you supposed to represent here?
