Freeman At the Point Of Use

Ed Miliband reassured a concerned member of the public in Huddersfield this morning that he doesn’t use private healthcare. Indeed, apparently he doesn’t know anyone who does:

“Not me and not anyone I know.”

Unfortunately not everyone got the memo. Here is Labour’s star new endorser Martin Freeman speaking to the Sunday Times in 2012:

“I live in a big house and I clearly have more money than anybody in the history of my family and that’s afforded me more choice. Do I use the private sector? Yes. I do because I can and I realise that the difference between the people who do and don’t is the wherewithal to do it. Do I support the NHS? Of course I f****** do. I still use it, but would I use private healthcare? Yes. I’ve got a map on my wall of Victorian London that cost 6½ grand, so why, if someone from my family needed something that was life or death, would I not spend my money on that?”
