Tory candidate for Mayor of London Zac Goldsmith launched a campaign today at an event hosted by an infamous political think-tank called Policy Exchange.
An interesting choice of host.
Because Policy Exchange thinks the NHS should be privatised:
“We believe that both private sector companies and third sector providers can play a key role in delivering what patients want from a modern National Health Service”
And Policy Exchange thinks social housing should be sold off to developers:
Ending Expensive Social Tenancies
And Policy Exchange also once produced an infamous report which tried to demonise Muslims – but which later had to be retracted because a BBC Newsnight investigation showed it had used fabricated evidence.
Nice of Goldsmith to let London voters know what he really thinks about the NHS, social housing and London’s multi-cultural heritage.
