Boris Johnson MP: Community Hospital Rally a Triumph – Time Now for Hewitt to Act

Commenting on the success of yesterday's CHANT (Community Hospitals Acting Nationally Together) Rally, at which upwards of 1,000 people attended, Boris Johnson MP said: 'I was thrilled so many people were able to make it and would like to thank each and every one of those who turned up for taking the time and trouble to do so. It was a huge demonstration of support by local people for these community hospitals. The whole day went exceedingly well, everybody behaved with incredible politeness and good humour, but this should not mask just how strongly people feel about this and how important the issue at stake really is. We must continue to keep up the pressure until we get a firm commitment from Patricia Hewitt that she will match the rhetoric of the Health White Paper with action. She must accept real responsibility for the current mess and finally step in to save all those community hospitals, including Townlands, that remain under imminent threat of closure'.

    Will Hell be freezing over at that point?

    The Labour party are just a bunch of lying (i can say it, even if Boris can’t!) cheating self-serving w**kers who i wouldn’t trust to post a letter, let alone run a country.

    I have a wall all ready for them, come the revolution!

    Power to the People!

    ;o)

  2. That’s unfair Psimon I’d trust them to post a letter if it contained a grubby promise of a peerage in exchange for a cartload of well used fivers.

  3. I wonder if they’d fall for “the cheque is in the mail?”

    Alternately and in case the Tories get in next time, someone could look into leveraging the value of a peerage, ie getting a loan against the title to purchase the title. Could lead to some novella-worthy social ramifications.
