Health - a result

I think the way in which the NHS reforms have been produced is a good example of how government should work. I was always concerned that we should keep the NHS as an essentially co-operative organism with European competition law being kept out.

What has happened through a process of consultation is that a set of proposals for reform that deal with most of the serious criticisms have been developed.

I personally think that a government that listens and sometimes changes is a good thing for the country. The examples on Forestry, EMA (£100m extra money for 6th formers), the NHS and student finance (higher payments by higher earners) are all cases where the initial policy has been changed in a positive way as a result of a conversation with citizens. We have failed to explain the student finance one, but people will find out how it works over time.

The kind of 'reform' I would like to see is where those 'people' are actually named, shamed and prosecuted when they murder or manslaughter people.
Or when they abduct somebody in an ambulance (for example), throw them out of, sentence them to fate worse than death then jail the mother when she enacts her son's wishes and removes the 'so called' medical attention. It's not actually medical attention when done without consent, at the very least it is assault and most likely GBH...personally I refuse any so called 'medical attention' as it is actually illegal to have anyhting that hasn't been tortured on animals first....sick society we survive in!
Not to mention privacy...which for means totally anonymous now! They refuse to give names, tell their addresses, DOB etc. so why shouldn't us victims? It's only the 'good one's' that claim to be a non physical entity BEFORE they attack you....and they're pretty much extinct now from what I can gather! Brave new world!

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …
