Boris pledges to make Britain 'Corbyn neutral' by axing crippling hospital parking fees


As per The Daily Telegraph, the Prime Minister joked if the Tories were to win, Britain would be “Corbyn neutral” by 2020. The general election will take place on December 12. Mr Johnson said the manifesto would list a programme to “get Brexit done and allow us to move on” and “unleash the potential of the whole country”.

The housing pledge will be to introduce free parking for two million “blue badge” disabled drivers and passengers.

It will also benefit frequent outpatients, gravely ill patients, visitors to relatives for extended periods and staff on night shifts who cannot use public transport.

The plan will be funded with £78million a year pledge for English hospitals and £216million in capital funding for 19 hospitals to build multi-storey car parks.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn vowed to abolish hospital car parking fees altogether.

Tory sources have said such a blanket decision would result in “fewer spaces” as car parks would fill up with additional vehicles, including those of local residents.

Mr Johnson is expected to say NHS hospitals will be made to provide free parking for “protected groups” after reaching the conclusions that hospitals had ignored guidance which demanded that “concessions, including free or reduced charges or caps, should be available for staff working unsociable shits, blue badge holders and visitors of gravely ill relatives.”
