As has been widely reported, if the Conservatives win the British election, a potential trade deal with the United States could put vital parts of the NHS at risk of privatization. “I think everything with the trade deal is on the table,” Donald Trump has remarked. “NHS or anything else … everything will be on the table, absolutely.” Those of us across the pond are horrified on the UK’s behalf. Don’t let Trump and his cronies carve up the NHS. Vote and fight as if your life depends on it – because it does. I spent a few hours this week recruiting subjects for a contribution to a budding 'don’t-follow-our-example' video genre. My sister Nye Taylor directed a short video in partnership with the non-profit Democracy Collaborative. The title: “A Warning From Americans.”
