Fighting Back : Petitions to Sign
The NHS : Lots to sign to protect and aid this great socialist institution, staring with this demand to cancel the proposed inquiry into whether it should be funded by user charges and insurance rather than tax.

A worker without representation is sending us back to the dark ages, where picketing would be illegal. Remember Tolpuddle! And sign this petition
