Letter 97: NHS Privatisation and Handing over to some friends

"Dear Dave,
I really shouldn't be writing to you right now. I should be getting my bag ready, but I want to let you know I'm going into hospital and I might not be well enough to write. Don't worry though, I've asked  a few friends to get in touch with you, over the next few weeks.
And don't think I'll be taking it easy - I'll be watching from my NHS bed, especially since I've heard  about your sneaky plan to extend competition and force"compulsory competitive markets" on the NHS.
I'm sorry that that I haven't had time to draw you a picture. I did have time though to sign the 38 Degrees petition requesting a full debate and vote on your plans in both Houses of Parliament. After all, it's not as if you have a mandate for selling off our precious NHS - imagine how well that would have gone doen at the last General Election!
With best wishes, etc
p.s.Wow, so far 186,024 signatures on the petition! We really do love out NHS, don't we? Actually that number has just gone up again, quite alot..."
