I see Gordon Brown is proposing a written constitution for the NHS.
I am slightly perplexed about this. In all my years of study at university we debated the country have a bill of rights and the pros and cons of a written constitution but I never remember there being any discussion on whether the NHS should have a written constitution.
Perhaps though it is a sign of the fear that Gordon brown now has of the Tories. He knows that with a good lead in the polls which would probably give the Tories a small working majority, the Tories could increase the levels of privatisation in the NHS, if they get in power and this might be Gordon Brown's way of stopping the Tories doing this ?
One thing is for certain, there will not be a "we want a referendum" campaign for this constitution.
