To set the record straight: 38 Degrees did not invite me to take part in their little publicity stunt.
And the Chichester Observer failed to contact me about it in order to establish the facts.
Readers and voters will draw their own conclusions regarding the real purpose of this petition.
Patria Manifesto 2015
We are fully committed to the restoration of a first class National Health Service, publicly owned and managed, funded from general taxation and free at the point of delivery.
We shall greatly expand the training and recruitment of British, rather than foreign, health professionals, particularly doctors, nurses and dentists. Foreign staff employed within the NHS shall be required to demonstrate an adequate command of the English language as an essential prerequisite of continued employment.
We reject the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Britain’s NHS and other public services are not for sale, least of all to foreign interests.
The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) shall be ended, with compensation paid as and where it is deemed appropriate.
The remuneration of dentists shall be increased in order to make NHS work a more attractive option for them.
Prescription charges and dental charges shall be abolished in England.
It shall be made illegal for healthcare providers to charge patients, their visitors and staff for parking on their premises.
We shall amend anti-smoking law to enable public houses, hotels, hospitals, universities, colleges, prisons, etc, to provide designated smoking rooms and areas.

Patria, the Home of Patriots, neither left nor right but patriotic.
Don’t worry about the truth Comrade Journalist, NUJ Best Practice is in place, so CARRY ON LYING.
