The EDP highlights the problems HERE and HERE , in two separate articles on their website. It is really rather worrying.
It will be an interesting point of focus for local elections next year in Norfolk. There are no Labour Councillors in South Norfolk, Broadland or North Norfolk, and if the NHS is used properly as an issue, they could be wiped out in Breckland too and lose seats in Norwich.
I read that Dr Ian Gibson, Labour MP for Norwich North is very upset about the situation and I know he is well known for be a Labour rebel, but his angry words will do nothing to change the government's minds on this. He will continue to take the Labour whip, and that is all that matters to the government. As good a local MP as he is, he is still a supporter of this Labour government, and this is something that the electorate of Norwich North will have to remember at the next election if they have missed out on NHS services due to the government cuts.
The only way Labour will learn a lesson and realise how angry people are is they take a good thrashing in the local elections next May.
