We'd like to thank everyone who took part in the #PublicDuty mass whistleblowing on
Twitter on Sunday. Tweets from several NHS campaigners were retweeted thousands of
times, and we've heard back from Twitter users who hadn't realised how bad things
are in the NHS at the moment.

In addition, the NHA's Dr Louise Irvine took part in the Daily Mirror's live NHS
crisis panel discussion earlier this week, alongside comedian and former junior
doctor Adam Kay and oncologist Dr Aislinn Macklin-Doherty. You can watch the
recording here

** NHA supports JR4NHS
------------------------------------------------------------
We've had some great news regarding the legal challenge against ACOs. JR4NHS have
secured the concession from NHS England that there must be a national public
consultation on ACOs, and no ACO contract will be signed until the consultation has
taken place.

This is important as ACO plans are essentially a way of turning local NHS boards
into insurance firms. The ACO plans have no legal basis in statute law.

Now a judge has ruled that arguments on the lawfulness of the ACO policy itself
should be heard.

But there's a problem - NHS England and the government are resisting every step of
the way and running up legal costs. Without a cap on costs, JR4NHS need to raise
further funds to cover the possibility of having to pay NHS England's costs.

Please click here to support JR4NHS
(https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/jr4nhs-round3/) and help us defeat the ACOs.

action this Saturday 3rd February. We'll be sending an NHA cohort to the London
demonstration, meeting at 11am at Euston station - details are on the Facebook event

Get Britain Out: Rampant Anti-Brexit Bias Across the Establishment

GetBritainOut_logoPublished by the Get Britain Out Campaign, 02 Feb 2018

All of Great Britain must have let out a collective groan this week, as draft Treasury so-called Brexit ‘impact assessments’ were suspiciously leaked into the public domain. This reaction was not prompted by the fictitious content of the reports, however, but was rather an indicator of how discredited the Treasury has become as a forecasting body, seemingly dedicated to promote an anti-Brexit bias.

Corbyn Has A Point – Privatisation Is Not A Panacea Or A Religious Faith Based Doctrine

Private finance initiatives (PFIs) have proven themselves to be one of the most disgustingly transparent transfers of wealth from the poor to the rich ever devised by successive Labour AND Conservative governments. It is a bankrupt, sleaze generating and anti-democratic policy damaging the fabric of our society. It has to be stopped.

If supporting the abolition of PFIs makes me a ‘Socialist’ in this matter then so be it. As an independent conservative (with a small c) I can see the common sense in Mr Corbyn’s argument.

It is a warning to the Conservative government that many small c conservatives feel the same way. We are well aware of the Hunt actioned dismemberment of the NHS amongst others. BE AWARE.

Greece – Convenient Victim or Complacent Masochist? The Devastating Social Impacts of IMF-ECB-EC “Economic Medicine”

By Peter Koenig, Global Research, January 20, 2018

Why this title? – Because Greece doesn’t have to continue playing the card of the victim, nor being masochist. Greece seems to suffer under the Stockholm Syndrome – she is in love with her hangman. Greece could change this. Exit the prison, exit the EU and exit the euro. Greece could return to her sovereign national currency, her own sovereign central bank, make her own monetary policy and implement it with a sovereign public banking system that works solely for the Greek economy. Within less than 10 years Greece would have recovered and would even be able to pay back some of her illegally begotten debt.

Telegraph: Muslim population of the UK could triple to 13m following ‘record’ influx

By Olivia Rudgard, Telegraph, 09 Jan 2018

The Muslim population of the UK is set to triple in 30 years, according to projections from the Pew Research Centre.

Under the model which assumes median migration levels, the number of Muslims in the country would rise from 4.1m in 2016 to 13m in 2050.

DUP: Foster – “we will not accept any form of regulatory divergence”

DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA, www.mydup.com, 04 December 2017

“We note the speculation emanating from the European Union exit talks regarding the Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom border.

We have been very clear. Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the United Kingdom. We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the United Kingdom. The economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom will not be compromised in any way.

UKIP: Mrs May must get a grip or go

Published ukip.org Dec 04, 2017

Decisions over a possible deal over the Northern Irish border today have stirred up a hornet’s nest of confusion, but there is an easier way say UKIP.

Gerard Batten MEP, the UKIP Brexit spokesman said,
“The feverish speculation about the EU negotiations and the Northern Irish border with the South has reached absurdity. The idea that the PM could negotiate a deal on the North Irish border without talking to the DUP is beyond credibility. However we do not yet know exactly what Mrs May has agreed or not agreed but it seems to hing on the words regarding ‘no regulatory divergence” as opposed to maintaining “regulatory alignment. In fact the UK in general has ‘regulatory alignment’ with the EU since having been members for 44 years our regulations are identical, or equivalent, to theirs. And now it appears to be so much sound and fury signifying nothing.

“Northern Ireland and its border with the RoI has always been a special case, and there is no reason why special arrangements for the movement of people, goods and services cannot continue post-Brexit.

“What today’s speculation shows is that Mrs May does not have a grip of the situation and is allowing the EU to set the pace in its efforts to undermine and reverse Brexit.

“Things have reached absurd heights when Sadiq Khan, Carwyn Jones and Nicola Sturgeon use the EU’s intransigence to demand UDI in reverse and to remain part of the EU.

“Mrs May should get a grip on the proceedings, she should tell the EU how things are going to work, not keep pleading with them and arguing about the amount of their ransom demand.

“That is unlikely to happen while she is in office. She needs to go now, or Brexit will surely be betrayed.”
