Not just a ‘Single Issue’ party
Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern is NOT just a ‘single issue’ party but a grouping of independent representatives of the people; taking on-board all manner of local problems (and solving them) and local aspirations (and aiding in their delivery).It grew out of the projected closure of Kidderminster Hospital (to which so many had contributed with fund-raising). This prompted mass protest and street parades and, ultimately, the rejection of the sitting Labour MP - a junior Minister.The party remains fundamentally concerned with the provision of health facilities and the delivery of all that results in ‘good health’ it is associated with concern for all aspects of a healthy community - education for all ages, support for the disabled and the elderly, transport, arts and entertainment, nature and the environment.

Continent in Chaos
FRANCEUrgent talks are underway to reopen the border after Paris suspended all travel links with the UK on Sunday night, throwing as much as 20% of Britain’s imports from the Continent into turmoil.The French President has introduced the requirement for all lorry-drivers to have a clear test result for Covid before proceeding onto the continent to prevent the spread of the new Covid strain.This will cause massive tailbacks in Dover, transport chiefs said – ultimately risking shortages on shops’ shelves and on factory floors on both sides of the Channel.SPAINIn a fifth night of clashes, protesters threw bottles at police, set fire to containers and smashed up shops in Barcelona on Saturday after Pablo Hasel, a Catalan musician, was arrested by the police to serve a prison sentence this week for “offensive lyrics” .. while Isabel Medina, an 18-year-old "fascist influencer" was allowed to march in Madrid just days before to deliver a highly antisemitic speech.As Hasel was preparing to barricade himself inside a university building in his Catalan home city of Lleida to avoid arrest, Ms Medina was taking part in an authorised march to pay homage to the dead from the Blue Division, soldiers sent by the Spanish dictator General Franco to fight for Hitler in Russia.GERMANYSuch is the extreme ‘Fake News’ in German social-media that Hospitals are refusing to give the ‘Astra-Zeneca’ vaccine to people because i) it is believed ineffective for over-65s.. or ii) it is actually harmful. Ambulance workers unions are turning it down and State legislatures are advising against its use.80% of the 6,100,000 doses of the ‘Oxford’ vaccine remain in German medical fridges.A single jab of either Pfizer or Oxford-AstraZenca vaccine is giving 90 % protection in a huge boost to Britain's world-beating rollout... but don't tell Merkel and Macron that the ‘Oxford’ one works even better on the over-70s.And now Germany closes its borders with Austria and the Czech Republic (well, that makes a change) and, together with Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Finland & Sweden, is being threatened with legal sanctions by their ‘beloved’ EU.AUSTRIA500 Viennese hospital staff objected to having the ‘Oxford’ vaccine rather than the Pfizer._____________________There seems a near hysterical reaction by people in some countries - where predicted “reaction” symptoms manifest themselves (known as the ‘Nocebo effect’)._____________________
