Another interesting insight into the biased mind of the BBC here. Justin Webb evidently has a problem with “Big Pharma” in true comradely fashion so when some of the world’s major producers of important drugs announce plans to supply at cost an anti-diarrhoea drug for African children, he is immediately suspicious and accuses them of seeking to curry our favour by “taxing” the NHS more in order that this can engage in such commercial magnanimity. The GSK spokesman is pretty sensible in what he says but you can sense the smouldering hostility from Webb. Through the prism of the left, personified by Webb, there is something inherently wrong in the profit motive and so all vendors of capitalism must be challenged even when,as in this case, they choose to save millions of lives.
