The Prole Star is an indie media group, based in Manchester and part of the leftie, Independent Media UK.
They’re launching a campaign against the Conservatives targeting marginal seats focused solely on saving our National Health Service.
We cannot allow the Conservatives to sell off the NHS by the backdoor.
Creeping privatisation will lead to a US-style private healthcare system, which we are sure no one in this country wants. In the US people die because they ration insulin and even kill themselves because they don’t want to bankrupt their families. We cannot stand by and allow that to happen here.
Under the Conservatives privatisation has increased from £4.1 billion in 2010 to £9.2 billion in 2019. A huge increase of over 120%.
We are raising the funds needed to make more people aware of the issue of NHS Privitisation. Our plan is to post mock healthcare bills with real costs and figures through doors in marginal seats with a clear message of warning about what is happening to our NHS. Every penny donated will be spent solely on the cost of printing and we will be looking for volunteers to get involved posting them to voters. Our target of £550 will pay for the printing of 50,000 mock bills, but if we reach our target early we have an additional target of £1100 to print 100,000 leaflets. Every penny over our target will go towards additional printing which will only increase the impact of our campaign. With some marginals held by just 20 votes we believe our campaign could help make all the difference.
Please support us in our cause and help us fight to save the NHS from the Conservatives and the market forces that fund their political party.
People are more important than profit and healthcare is not a commodity we choose to consume. But most importantly we must remember the warnings of those that lived in the barbarous times before we had public healthcare free at the point of use. “We must never ever let the NHS free from our grasp, because if we do your future will be my past.” – Harry Leslie Smith.
