It may be too little too late to stop the bill, but at least the message is getting out there. The more people know about this, the better. For over a month the connections to Lords and companies involved in private healthcare was made available through twitter and the blog. Throughout the course of the research, and as it became increasingly clear that the members of the upper chamber were riddled with self-interest, we kept informing mainstream media along with other Twitterers that they should publish the information.
None of them did.
Russia Today have now run this important story and good that it is getting out there, but why not the UK media? The law remains unchanged, Lords remain able to vote on bills regardless of their self-interest.
It is unacceptable.
Please sign the petition here to stop Lords voting on self-interest, and spread the message wide: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/31991
