Repeal The Sections Of The Human Rights Act That Are Farcical.

Repeal the parts of The Human Rights Act that make fools of every law abiding citizen in this country. A recent example, a prisoner suing the government because he had to wait a few days to be treated for toothache. He was awarded £66,000 in compensation which was reduced on appeal to £44,000. All paid for from the tax payers pocket, legal aid, compensation etc. With rights come responsibilities. I'm all for people having protection from discrimination & intimidation in all aspects of their lives. But this legislation should not be abused by those who seek to use it time & time again to further their own ends.

Why is this idea important?

Abolish NHS Direct & Scrap The National NHS IT Programme.

As someone who works in the NHS I strongly believe that NHS Direct should be abolished. I'm convinced it's just another level of bureaucracy that costs the country billions of pounds a year.

Also, the NHS National IT Programme should be stopped in it's tracks. A system extremely unuser friendly. Already years behind schedule, billions of pounds over budget. A complete & utter waste of time & resources. A crackpot idea from the beginning. Any hospital, such as my own, which is already lumbered with this load of junk, should be able to get rid of it & return to the perfectly adequate systems that were already in place.
