Apologies to all our campaigning friends on Wirral – you haven’t had a look in this week but we hope to rectify the situation this Sunday evening with a trio of posts (yes , you lucky people). Could this be the start of Wirral Leaks ‘Sunday Campaign Bulletin’ ? Probably not! First up we have our faithful friends at Defend Our NHS . Not only are we liking their campaign we’re liking their campaigning style…

Dear friends of the NHS
We have been undecided on the most appropriate Valentine-themed title for our next public meeting on 14th February.
Given that 32,000 of us, including many local doctors, still await a response to our objections to Wirral CCG’s plans to undermine community health centre services, our early suggestion was walk-in back to (un)happiness…
As the plans are only part of the wider political agenda to ‘slash, trash and privatise’ we changed the title to the St Valentine’ Day Massacre (of the NHS in Wirral)…
But, on a day for the softy in you, when you will be thinking of roses and chocolates and candlelit suppers and sloppy films, if you and yours are making your way through a cold dark Wirral night you deserve a fine romance…
So this is what we have in store for you. A drama of epic proportions! Spanning continents! Passion! Pride! Laughter! Tears! Yet more tears! Romance!
Yes! It’s the love for the NHS that dare not speak its name. Four men against the world!
