Friends,

I’m Kathryn Anderson and I’m writing to introduce myself and to ask you to assist my campaign team for next year’s General Election. You may have already seen that I’m the prospective parliamentary candidate for the NHA in the constituency of Chingford and Woodford Green where Iain Duncan Smith is the current MP.

We are holding a meeting on Monday 8th December at 7pm. The venue is the Duke of Wellington Pub, 119 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BL. The meeting room is accessible.

The aim of the meeting will be to organise on-the-ground assistance with street stalls, leafleting, etc. If you’re not in a position to be out and about perhaps you could help with our social media campaign. I’m sure we can find lots to do whether you can offer a regular commitment in the run up to the election or just an odd hour every now and then.

I’m inviting members and supporters from a wider area than just the constituency. As you know the party isn’t in a position to stand many candidates and we welcome local campaigners who are willing to lend a hand, or who just want to stay connected.

If you’d like to know more please get in contact via NHAPartyWF@gmail.com or contact me directly via nhakathryn@outlook.com

I look forward to meeting you on the 8th.

Many thanks

Kathryn

#HuntMustGo

Jeremy Hunt’s thoughtlessness and incompetence plumb new depths with his admission that he took his kids to A&E rather than wait for an appointment with their family doctor.

Jeremy Hunt: ‘I took my children to A&E because I didn’t want to wait for GP appointment’

That just about says it all, doesn’t it. The Health Secretary himself has no confidence in the health system that he is supposed to be ‘promoting’. Thanks to the Health & Social Care Act 2012, Hunt is no longer required to actually ‘provide’ an NHS, but he could at least avoid doing what Ben Goldacre has called “without question the most stupid, insight-less and irresponsible thing I have ever seen from a health minister“.

The wonderful author of Bad Science and Bad Pharma, Goldacre continues “In saying this, Jeremy Hunt is encouraging overload to pretty much the most expensive place to deliver primary care.If this is part of a strategy I’d like to know what that is. It truly reads like an uninformed dinner party outburst.

Not only…
