ABOVE: £692,592 donor: Paul Ruddock’s firm has profited from NHS contracts
Private health care firms with Tory links have been awarded NHS contracts worth nearly £1.5billion.
Circle Health landed £1.36billion worth of health service work after several of its investors gifted about £1.5million to the Conservatives.
And Care UK has contracts worth another £102.6million. Its chairman John Nash was made a peer after boosting Tory coffers by £247,250.
Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham, who uncovered the figures, fumed: “Nobody gave David Cameron permission to sell the NHS to his friends.
“It’s shocking the same Tory donors who bankrolled the development of their NHS reorganisation policy are now profiting from the sell-off of NHS services.”
Labour’s research shows Circle Health’s parent company, Circle Holdings PLC, is owned by a series of hedge funds.
Lansdowne Partners, with a 29.2% stake, was founded by Sir Paul Ruddock, who donated £692,592 to the Tories.
David Craigen, who gave the party £59,000, is also involved in Lansdowne.
Invesco Perpetual owns 28.7% of Circle Holdings. It was set up by Sir Martyn Arbib, who donated £466,330.

This is a difficult issue to grapple with. Infantilising the subject of paedophilia by, ahem, playing it down with a card game seems somewhat inappropriate. However, if the gift is given to many households throughout the U.K. then the weighty evidence and information on paedophilia in the British Establishment will be seen by, and in the possession of, many people. (This information needs to be on the streets -not hidden away on the internet.) I think this constant reminder of a taboo subject outweighs any accusation of making fun of such an national outrage that the Establishment is trying to sweep under the carpet.
Jonathon Blakeley over on the Deliberation website raises a very important point: “It [the card game] features all those well known celebrities from, the BBC – Jimmy Savile, Rolf Harris and many politicians too. It’s collection is also interesting for the many omissions of people still living and very powerful.” -Ed.

I am not entering the debate about whether cards should be on sale or not, as that would be a distraction from my intention of providing the information that is on the cards. I do however provide some links about it below.

A CONVICTED paedophile dramatically had his sentencing adjourned yesterday after he told a judge he “knows the names” of the alleged Westminster child sex ring.
Serial sex offender Michael McAuliffe, 50, threatened to shout out the names before being bundled back to his cell by prison guards.
Judge Peter Benson, sitting in Bradford Crown Court, West Yorks, had seconds earlier adjourned the case to give police six weeks to investigate the claims.
Judge Benson had earlier passed the defence and prosecution council a letter from McAuliffe’s solicitors before the case was heard and as the paedophile was being led into the dock from cells
His barrister James Bourne-Arton, after reading the letter, told the court: “He has a desire to provide relevant information into investigations into those which concern the 1970s in the Westminster area.
“He has details and information, and more, there are other instances of child abuse and a paedophile ring, which he is willing to provide information on.”
Mr Bourne-Arton admitted McAuliffe’s motivation for helping police is to do a deal and get a more lenient sentence.
The court heard that West Yorkshire Police would need a “scoping interview” for officers to assess the degree of usefulness to their inquiries.
McAuliffe had fled to London from West Yorkshire because he was a closely monitored sex offender in his home town of Haworth following a conviction for possessing child pornography.
But he was brought back to justice after being spotted by an eagle-eyed Bradford police officer who was enjoying a break in the capital.
Conservative MP Mark Pritchard has been arrested over an allegation of rape.
The Metropolitan police confirmed that a 48-year-old man – understood to be the Tory MP for The Wrekin in east Shropshire – was arrested on Tuesday in central London.
Scotland Yard said he was arrested after voluntarily attending a police station and had been bailed until early January.
The news emerged after a letter from the Met to the Commons Speaker, John Bercow, about the arrest was referred to on a publicly available Commons order paper.
