Lefty Topspin Takes Sheen Off Buzzfeed

“Michael Sheen Has Delivered A Furious Attack On The Tories’ Treatment Of The NHS” reads the Buzzfeed headline reporting on a speech by the actor over the weekend. Sheen “delivered a impassioned speech in defence of the NHS” and apparently “people on the internet are absolutely loving it”. But was Sheen’s speech quite the anti-Tory diatribe Buzzfeed claimed? Read down to the bottom of the article and he actually said:

“This is beyond party politics. The Labour government arguably did as much damage to the NHS as any Tory or coalition [government].”

Even the Guardian headline“Michael Sheen defends NHS against ‘bland’ politicians” – reflected Sheen’s non-partisan position. Their write up makes clear Sheen was criticising “politicians in thrall to the market from both Conservative and Labour parties”. Such left-wing topspin would make even HuffPo UK blush…
