Lib Dems' Nick Clegg plans radical departure?

This is the headline in the Torygraph - apparently the Lib Dems have a radical plan for health care provision, they are going to bring the private sector in to help with long waits.

So all we need to identify is which part of this concept is radical and distinguishes them from Labour (pushing as much to their corporate friends as they can) and the Tories (weren't quite brave enough to privatise health care but would do now).

The mushy grey centre of politics is not where radical progressive parties are. Perhaps not putting taxpayers money that should go to patient care into corporate shareholders pockets would have been radical.
