The UK will hold its general elections this Thursday. Campaigns are being roiled in the last week by the documents Labour brandished to accuse the Conservatives of planning to sell the National Health Service to the US, or, put somewhat more plausibly, that the Tory Government was planning to offer thorough control of the NHS's place in the healthcare market to a set of US firms in order to sweeten negotiation of a new UK-US trade deal. Labour's leader Jeremy Corbyn is hanging tough, saying it's an important issue the Prime Minister has yet to address, and that he won't reveal where the documents came from, the Guardian reports.
