'he operated a small radical bookshop in the Westgate Road, called Days of Hope...was Co-ordinator of the Trade Union Studies Information Unit (TUSIU) from the mid-1980s a campaign to defend shipbuilding in Sunderland...In 2002 Milburn introduced NHS foundation trusts, "described at the time as a sort of halfway house between the public and private sectors... "

'In 2013 Milburn joined PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as Chair of PwC's UK Health Industry Oversight Board, whose objective is to drive change in the health sector, and assist PwC in growing its presence in the health market.[20][21] Milburn continued to be Chairman of the European Advisory Board at Bridgepoint Capital, whose activities include financing private health care companies providing services ito the NHS,[22][23] and continued as a member of the Healthcare Advisory Panel at Lloyds Pharmacy.[24][25]'

A soldier of fortune. Did the usual NUS / 'radical bookshop' / trade union / Labour Party gravy train and then by virtue of being around in the New Labour landslide and his face fitting he hit the jackpot.
He's worse than the Tories and the financial elite.  Farted around with the left until he saw being in the right place at the right time would make him rich. 
Any private Healthcare gig he can bleed the taxpayer indirectly for via PCW and the rest. Solidarity with the Sunderland shipbuilders, eh, comrade!
