Don't Mention Mid-Staffs

MPs have been deluged with emails from the obviously completely non-partisan “progressives” 38 Degrees over the last few days, opposing Jeremy Hunt’s “privatisation plot”. Tory backbencher Andrew Jones has rooted out the logic behind the campaign:

Dear colleague,

I am sure that, like me, you have received many standard emails via the 38 Degrees website on supposed NHS privatisation.

I thought you may be interested to know that the author of the 38 Degrees independent legal advice is former Labour MP, David Lock QC, who was the MP for Wyre Forest until losing to Dr Richard Taylor, the Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern candidate. Mr Lock remains active in Labour politics as Chair of the West Midlands Labour Finance and Industry Group.

Regards

Andrew

As David Nicholson takes a battering at his select committee hearing this morning, it is worth noting the 38 Degrees campaign has absolutely nothing to say about the failings at Mid-Staffs…
