From the email I just received from 38 Degrees:
Good news. It looks like we may have nipped it in the bud. Jeremy Hunt has been forced to respond to our 180,000-strong petition. And he's made a public pledge to "never" introduce a limit on the number of times we're allowed to visit our GP.
Here's what he said on twitter in full. He couldn't resist being rude about us, but it's still positive news:
"In case being misled by 'neutral' 38Degrees e-petition, it IS NOT and WAS NEVER going to be Conservative policy to limit GP appointments."
On Tuesday, this was a serious Conservative Party policy proposal, being reported in national newspapers.  Now, it's "never" going to happen.
That's pretty extraordinary. By working together in big enough numbers, we've forced a leading politician to change his tune in just 48 hours. No wonder he doesn't like us - ordinary people, working together, are limiting his ability to damage our NHS.
This is what 38 Degrees is all about. Jeremy Hunt may grumble. But he knows he can't afford to ignore us. We're independent. We move fast. We stick to our principles. And most importantly of all, there are thousands and thousands of us, all over the country.
Thanks to everyone who signed and passed the word around
