with John Pilger

goingundergroundRT on Apr 8, 2020

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and film-maker John Pilger about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

He discusses the fact that the Conservative government was warned about shortages leaving the NHS vulnerable in pandemics 4 years ago, the damage privatisation has done to the National Health Service, budget cuts which have seen bed capacities fall to record lows, his criticisms of the Boris Johnson administration’s response to Coronavirus, the lack of mass-testing in the U.K. which has been seen in other countries such as Germany, South Korea and China, the government blaming China for the Coronavirus crisis, the threat to Julian Assange’s life as he is denied release from prison as Coronavirus claims its first victim in Belmarsh Prison and more!

    (Will this comment and link be censored, because it doesn’t meet ‘community expectations’?)

    • Fair, yes.

      It’s not “censorship” as Dandelion Salad is not a government, it’s a personal blog.

      Actually I just don’t have the time to go and read and/or watch whatever link or links that readers may leave in the comments. So, yes, I removed the link to the article you suggested.
