health & social care bill...... (no running or bikes)

help stop nye bevan from spinning in his grave and keep access to health services free for all at the point of need.
our national health service certainly isn't perfect but it's certainly worth fighting for. it seems that the main purpose of these reforms is to commercialise the whole nhs. health care should never be about profit. this can only lead to greater health inequalities whilst opening up a system ripe for fraud and manipulation. how can planning care provision around market forces ever be beneficial to its users?! services will be cut and it will be, as always, the most vulnerable that will be at greatest risk.

the 3rd reading in the house of lords takes place next monday. this might be the last chance of any meaningful debate on the health and social care bill. the link below is an easy and polite way to encourage the lib dem peers and mps to do the right thing. it's also just amusing laughing at their titles, lord charlile of berriew or baroness garden of frognal..... click here for more. or you could sign the 38 degrees petition. or you could sign the "drop the health bill" e-petition. or you could write to your own mp, find them here. or you could do all four.

...sorry, but i'm posting this again....

David Cameron loves the NHS so much, he wants to cut it into little pieces and give it away to all his friends :(

Polo shirts for men always fit the occasion if there is any doubt about what a man should wear.[url=http://www.polo-shirts-outlet.com/]cheap polo[/url] Sometimes an invitation is not very specific about the venue; or it's a place you are not familiar with so you don't know what the dress code for the venue is likely to be. [url=http://www.polo-shirts-outlet.com/] ralph lauren polo sirts[/url]It's very embarrassing to be asked to put on something more suitable or to 'up' one's dress standards before being allowed to enter a restaurant or nightclub.[url=http://www.polo-shirts-outlet.com/] cheap polos [/url] This indecision between an informal, semi-formal or quite dressy occasion can often be solved by wearing a polo shirt.www.polo-shirts-outlet.com/
