A cancer patient was so impressed by his NHS treatment he has been inspired to spread his English pride via the internet. Maidonian John Sewell found himself overflowing with patriotism after receiving treatment for Hodgkinâs disease at Wexham Park Hospital.
Overcome with the need to celebrate our nationâs strengths, he launched a campaign on St Georgeâs Day to ensure a corner of the world wide web remains âForever Englishâ.
The web entrepreneur is campaigning for England to have its own domain name, .eng and has set up an online petition. He has collected more than 350 names in the past eeek and will take the final tally to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
The Pinkneys Road resident said: âIâmproud of the NHS and England and feelquite patriotic about doing something for England.â
The 46-year-old said: âThe major driving force for this campaign was beingill. Being treated by the NHS made me realise how great it is to be in this country. I wouldnât have had any better care anywhere than I received in Wexham.â
