I recently received your letter to residents announcing your intention to stand again for the Hayes & Harlington constituency in the General Election.
In your letter, you raise the issues of the NHS and the local housing crisis – Both are extremely important issues and you are quite right to highlight them.
Having read the letter, I would like to raise the following points.
1 – The NHS
You state that you fear a Conservative win at the next General Election will lead to the NHS being privatised and sold off. Whilst I share that fear, you appear to overlook the fact that your party (Labour) in government started the privatisation of the NHS and indeed introduced more privatisation to the service than the Coalition have done since taking power in 2010.
