ItsBAme. It looks good but I always worry about these things. An American registered company or charity making statements on the NHS that gives out lots of information EXCEPT for naming its own directors and management. I don't doubt your good intentions but I always treat things like this with great caution.

If you doubt the information (which I do not as this government has been doing this sort of thing all the time) you should of course check the source, but if the information is found to be true I hope you are as disgusted by this government's behaviour as I am.

Bobby, This is a Kosher campain group acting from America. I usually don't sign for them because the issues are US issues. but this time, we must do our utmost to make our NHS really ours, wihtout the sady deals to pick up the best part and make our citizens pay a lot of hard cash. Mic

Maybe we should be cautious but perhaps we should note and be alert and aware. A friend sent me a similar link a few days ago. trying to find it.

Just to be on the safe sign, wouldn't give any info' to this group or sign anything! Maybe I am over-cautious!

I've signed, if everything is above board, why the secrecy?

Thank you - this was precisely the sort of thing I was trying to highlight in another reply to a post regarding politics and the NHS - these companies are making huge profits on the backs of people's suffering and misery and taking money for those profits out of the public purse - the present government has got away with these for too long and if we allow them and these practices to continue we have only ourselves to blame. I am currently being told they want to wean me off oxygen as I am 'borderline' which makes me wonder if this is just another government cut. I would not put anything past this lot - my home oxygen service being run by an 'enterprise' whatever that is. Good post thank you. xx

Just wondering why I heard nothing on the news about the February 28th Save our NHS demonstration....11,000 are said to have taken part, so their website said.

I have not bought a paper today so don't know if anything in them though.

There was a mention on the local news on a demonstration about the East Coast railway line , mention of the Pergida one in Newcastle and the demonstration in Moscow too.

I can confirm the day of action "38 degrees action on the NHS" did take place and was very successful.I was there for a short time,the weather did for my breathing.The majority of people passing were happy to sign the petition.

The news papers will be told not to print anything we are coming up to a election and anything that might stop people voting they are scared off. I think people should be made aware of what is happening to OUR service this is why we pay NI. The labour party started the rot in the NHS by the sanctions they put on it a long term plan to sell it off.

They will all tell you that they are for the NHS but remember how to tell when a MP is telling lies is when his mouth moves.

not at all I think people should be made aware of the facts before going to the polling station I would love nothing more to kick the MP's and alike out of the NHS this way we would still have a service and for your information I would not vote for the Tories and for your information I di ALWAYS vote labour until they put the sanctions on the NHS

I have already signed against the TTP, those deals made by say, armament firms in America to pick profitable parts of the NHS.

I'm all behind this. I've signed and shared it on Facebook. Mic
