Does anybody have an interest in the #NHS ? πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

Now I have your attention, may I show you @AllysonPollock 's superb #NHSReinstatementBill ?

It's here:…

It's complete. But the previously tabled attempt in 2018 was gerrymandered into submission ...
The Bill would:

β€’ reinstate the government’s duty to provide the NHS in England,
β€’ re-establish NHS England as a special health authority with regional committees and
modified functions,
β€’ re-establish District Health Authorities, with Family Health Services Committees to administer arrangements with GPs, dentists and others,
β€’ abolish marketised bodies such as NHS trusts, NHS foundation trusts and clinical commissioning groups, as well as Monitor, the regulator of NHS foundation trusts
and commercial companies,
β€’ end virtually all commissioning and allow commercial companies to provide services only if the NHS could not do so and otherwise patients would suffer,
β€’ re-establish Community Health Councils to represent the interest of the public in the NHS,
β€’ stop licence conditions taking effect which have been imposed by Monitor on NHS foundation trusts and that will have the effect of reducing by April 2016 the number
of services that they currently have to provide,
β€’ bring the terms and conditions of staff employed in providing NHS services under the NHS Staff Council,
β€’ prohibit ratification of the TTIP AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL TREATIES without the approval of Parliament (and the devolved bodies) if they would cover the NHS.
@threadreaderapp unroll, please.

Today's THE LONG READ: A brilliant and authentic article by our wonderful & perceptive Comrade @RDHale_

@CEVoices : Can Starmer's Flag Shagging Really Win Over the Red Wall?…
"We want more council houses so everyone can get a roof over their heads. We want better pay so we stand a chance of getting on the housing ladder. We want more jobs so no-one is left unemployed. We want affordable utilities and proper investment in our schools and hospitals."

We are going to have to face a simple and devastating truth on the left. Strategically, we are a fucking disaster.

Plans, cunning or otherwise, 'R NOT US.

Basically, in the long term, we have not a clue.

We are a tribe of Micawbers, "waiting for something to turn up".
"Not at all, and now, since this is a red-letter day in that I am hourly expecting something extraordinary to turn up, let us return and discover what culinary triumphs Mrs. Micawber has prepared for us."

We should rather seek out Mrs. Whiplash. πŸ˜’
On the rare occasion that something DOES turn up, like @jeremycorbyn , we fuck it up. In spades.

Why did we not turn up at Southside, with knobkerries and fire necklaces??? I will never know.

I am close to despair. πŸ˜’

Dear @Twitter @TwitterSupport @jack ,

@0Calamity is one of my best friends on here, and is a most restrained and polite person. Also a barrister.

I cannot imagine why she would have been suspended - so please would you end that suspension?

I would be most grateful.

Here, my Fweeps, is the CRUCIAL provision of the agreement, page 9:

"Article COMPROV.13: Public international law:
"1. The provisions of this Agreement and any supplementing agreement shall be interpreted in good faith in accordance with their ordinary meaning in their context and in light of the object and purpose of the agreement in accordance with customary rules ...
of interpretation of public international law, including those codified in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, done at Vienna on 23 May 1969."

"The law locks up the man or woman
Who steals the goose from off the common
But leaves the greater villain loose
Who steals the common from off the goose
"The law demands that we atone
When we take things we do not own
But leaves the lords and ladies fine
Who take things that are yours and mine
"The poor and wretched don't escape
If they conspire the law to break
This must be so but they endure
Those who conspire to make the law
