Covid: Starkey blames ‘big government’ NHS


THE ‘big government’ nature of the NHS is to blame for Britain’s ‘catastrophically bad’ handling of the coronavirus crisis, says David Starkey.

In a scathing critique, the historian and social commentator warns that the centralised bureaucracy of Public Health England has stifled progress against the pandemic. By contrast, regionally-based health systems such as those in Germany have forged ahead.

Interviewed on the New Culture Forum Channel, Dr Starkey also tells of the dire impact on Britain of globalisation and the departure of manufacturing jobs. You can see the full interview on YouTube here.
