PM: 'Selling the NHS is pure Loch Ness Monster stuff'

Boris Johnson has said it is "pure Loch Ness Monster" territory to suggest the NHS was up for grabs under his Brexit deal.

Asked if he would legislate to protect the NHS from US intervention, the PM told broadcasters: "Under us the NHS is not for sale.

It's not going to be on any kind of international trade negotiation.

This is pure Loch Ness Monster, Bermuda Triangle stuff." Report by Czubalam.
