OK, listen up, please? 😊 Here follows a thread - please read all of it. (1/11)

You are all aware that I, and others, have been stewarding this:


Petition: Protect the #NHS , Press Pause on the White Paper for Health and Social care:

So, we got to the 10,000 eventually, which forces a response from the Government.

The response was puerile, facile and lied as well, particularly about the so-called "consultation". πŸ˜’

So we pressed on. (2/11)
In the meantime, various other similar campaigns were gathering momentum: (3/11)

Health Secretary Sajid Javid: Protect the NHS: Stop the health and care bill - Sign the Petition! chng.it/4qqxySFP via @UKChange
Also, about a month ago, @JujuliaGrace and @EveryDoctorUK mounted their excellent campaign.

All of these are crucial, but only the Parliamentary Petition is ON THE RECORD. Please bear this in mind, for future campaigns. (4/11)
The purpose of all these excellent campaigns, is to stop the creeping #PRIVATISATIONOFTHENHS, begun by Virginia Bottomley, Health Secretary in the Major Government, in 1996: (5/11)

It is extremely important to highlight the very long standing work of @drbobgill , culminating in THE Documentary "The Great #NHS Heist", in the production of which many are involved: (6/11)

It is also crucial, to point out that there is ALREADY a well-designed and drafted #NHSReinstatementBill , by the wonderful @AllysonPollock , which may be found here: (7/11)
"The National Health Service Bill"
This morning, I & all the other signatories of the Parliamentary Petition received, before our 100,000 mark has been reached, news that MPs will indeed debate this ghastly legislation in Westminster Hall, to be led by @RichardBurgon , "On the future of the NHS". (8/11)
It is therefore vital that we now turn up the pressure on ALL MPs, just to attend this debate.

I cannot stress this enough. (9/11)

Everybody who sees themselves as being left, should be made to reflect on two simple, but intensely germane, facts about the Labour Party.
1.) But it was not to be. Council Labour Groups were strongholds of the right-wing. Out of more than 7,000 Labour councillors only 400 or so had supported Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership bid. (@TUSCoalition , No Cuts Peoples' Budget)

The Government "response" to the petition "Protect the NHS, Press Pause on the White Paper for Health and Social care".
Those of you who signed this petition - if you did not, please do now - will have received an email in response this morning. To dignify it with a full-on critique would, in my view, be a mistake.
The nature of the response can be gauged by the documents they provide in support. We can, perhaps, spend some time on the ridiculous and insulting market speak - I hesitate to call it language - a little later.

Nicholas Wilson (Mr Ethical) first told HSBC subsidiary HFC Bank in 2003 that charges they were adding to debts were illegal. They ignored him. He has campaigned ever since.
2006 - NW reported his employers, Weightmans Solicitors, to the Solicitors Regulation Authority. They sacked him and referred to him as 'Mr Ethical'.

2007 the SRA confirmed the charges were illegal, but did nothing
2010 the Office of Fair Trading told the bank to stop adding the charges.

Well, now, back to back, belly to belly, well, I don't give a damn 'cause I done dead already, back to back

One female zombie wouldn't behave
She say she want me for a slave
In the one hand she's holding a quart of wine, in the other she's pointing that she'll be mine

Well, believe me folks, I had to run. (Why?)
A husband of a zombie ain't no fun! (Don't knock it!)
I says, "Oh, no, my turtle dove, that old bag of bones I cannot love." Oh, what you doin'?
