To Michael Buchanan & James Melley BBC ‘News’
Dear Michael and James,
I have corresponded with you before Michael - re the use of opiates in a 'geriatric warehouse' in Gosport and on another matter.
I saw your broadcast last night, and heard your additions on 'Today' today.
As a doctor, and later orthopaedic and trauma surgeon, who started training at St Mary's in 1958, I cannot lie quiet. For this reason I stood as an independent candidate in Newton Abbot in the recent 'snap' election in which the BBC very obviously helped the eventual winner.
The NHS is in free fall and it has been planned, as you both probably know, for a long time. In the annexe to my web site https://dhalpin.infoaction.org.uk/election-2019
I quote third down Nicholas Ridley -
Conservative Party’s Economic Reconstruction Group
In his report to the Conservative Party’s Economic Reconstruction Group in 1977, Nicholas Ridley wrote that:
"...denationalisation should not be attempted by frontal attack but by preparation for return to the private sector by stealth. We should first pass legislation to destroy the public sector monopolies. We might also need to take power to sell assets. Secondly, we should fragment the industries as far as possible and set up the units as separate profit centres."
Senior journalists + editors at Spotlight BBC SW
Dear Jenny Walrond and Justin Leigh,
I noted your broadcast 6-01-19 - A&E at RCH overwhelmed. 12 hour waits for some. A DGH not able to take acute admissions so looking at DGHs elsewhere. Consider the youngster with symptoms and sign of acute appendicitis. In the ambulance **. Prompt diagnosis - saved from peritonitis. (Female - risk of infertility) Whilst there are urgent 'phone calls out of the county. Consider the despair of any one with real physical or mental illness waiting, waiting.
And last night 7-01-19 ?all SW DGHs on '''opal four''' !!- in place of the more obvious 'black alert'.
Last week - patients at Plympton - difficulty in registering with GP, and Sherford 'new town' no glitsy surgery yet. The CCG, responsible for the provision and standards of the medical services failing but 'considering' options - after the families had moved into often shoddily built homes - your report.
You greyed out Independent candidates, as did ITV. On my election annexe - https://dhalpin.infoaction.org.uk/election-2019
I recommend that people read this full account of the US/Trump stance by Professor Chossudovsky, editor of Global Research. It contains many facts which will never be given by the most corrupt western 'media'. You have to go on line to find any truths -
Quote re US/UK air attacks within Syrian and Iraqi air space
'The air raids were intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.'
I add my amateur assessment of the hair trigger for WW3 in the Persian Gulf as of 14-06-19, published in Global Research

Dear Mr Hart,
The delegated decision to allow this application was relayed to me by Mrs Helen Cock. Attached. As an interested party who has made cogent objections to this process, I would expect the courtesy of being informed directly.
I am very aware this is not a 'planning' matter, but at a stroke the privacy of my wife and me, and of guests, will be the less when in our north facing rooms, both by day and night. The value of our property has been lessened by an amount that cannot be measured. It puts us in the shoes of the couple who bought this Colt bungalow about 40 years ago. It had lain unused. The retired thatcher and his artistic wife had to fight their way up a drive overwhelmed by brambles and seeded trees. They set to work with their daughter and her partner. They tamed the large garden and enhanced it greatly, including excellent stone masonry. We can put ourselves in the shoes of Mr and Mrs Hodges who saw apartments rising up where there had been a small dwelling with a small commercial garage run by a talented mechanic - Mr Edgecombe I believe. The Hodges planted laurel as a screen. Happily, some layered on the bank derived from excavation for the apartments, and these screen the lower storeys between the properties.
Before I comment further on the process and principle, I respectfully ask for further information. As you know, I do not have to cite the Freedom of Information Statute, all public bodies being bound to respond to proper questions within 20 days. The answers will be immediately at hand and could be given to me within a few days only.

Campaigning hard as an Independent man and mind in the constituency of Newton Abbot. Back from the woods, I had a message about 10 days ago to contact you. You have interviewed me several times, first and way back to do with the Voyage of The Dove and the Dolphin - 1-02-03. Again re my fight with good others for the life of our Community Hospitals and their vital in-patient beds. Lost - hence the third world chaos in OUR DGHs. Every day I hear stories of gross negligence.
I 'phoned the Plymouth BBC, and James recorded about 7 minutes of my forth right responses to about 6 set questions. He said 'great'. I trust he will stay in post. He said you were unsure when the whole piece would be broadcast. I have not heard. I have watched a few minutes of the Boris/Jeremy Punch and Judy show which central BBC 'editors' are keen to flog to infinity. I have seen a few excruciating clips from the third form debating society - Mrs Swinson. Britain has been lowered mostly by our politicians but ably helped by the 'media'.
