Dentists and Ambulances

It's been an NHS few days with news coming through that the campaign we have supported for a new NHS dentist in Snaith has moved a step forward. This has been a long campaign, with many people involved and much of the pressure for a new dentist coming from Snaith Town Council. Needless to say though the Labour MP has issued a quote which basically suggests it's all his doing. I wonder if there will be a photo of him to accompany this quote in the papers this week!

Unemployment Rises

Sad news yesterday that unemployment in both North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire has risen whilst there was a small dip in the rest of the country.

Labour Rely on Fear

I've just read the apparent announcement of how Gordon Brown's Labour Party plan to fight the next election. They propose five 'doorstep' pledges and five 'fears' about the Tories which they propose to deploy.  We all remember Labour's pledge card from 1997 which if I remember included a pledge regarding youth unemployment, now higher than it was in 1997.

Happy New Year ... at last

I've not been very good at updating the website in recent weeks largely because the run up to Christmas at school was pretty hectic whereas Christmas itself is time for family. I really prefer to keep my posts to politics rather than other issues so there are no pictures of my Christmas dinner table on here! I'm not as self-indulgent as some in politics I could mention.
