After sending letters to the local papers and campaigning at the Thornton Heath festival, Labour have now removed the offending NHS birthday card. :-)
We are now blessed with a picture of Malcolm Wicks MP!
Extract from the original letter:
"......multinationals will only pick off the profitable services on offer. As a result care for mental health and the elderly are now severely lacking.
We are sleepwalking towards an American system where huge chunks of health expenditure are wasted on the costs of operating in the market, i.e., making and monitoring contracts, marketing, invoicing and even tackling fraud.
If the Croydon Labour Party has any self respect they should remove the card from the window of their constituency office immediately."
