Mike Weatherley vs. The Reds Under The Bed
A couple of points worth mentioning. 38 Degrees are in no way connected to the Labour Party. This is a line that has been trotted out before by Tory MP’s. One wonders if it is just laziness or a dismal attempt to undermine the credibility of an organisation that simply provides a vehicle for coordinated protest.
The assertion that Labour never revealed the risk register is barely worthy of the playground. It would be unusual to reveal the risk register if nobody asked to see it. The difference in this case is that people did ask to see it. In fact a legal ruling was made declaring it to be in the public interest to see it. A ruling the Tories ignored.
The declaration that Mike will stand up for what he believes in is interesting. Mike Weatherly was elected fairly, as the MP for Hove. At the time, the Tories were making several promises they have since broken. Amongst these promises was the claim that “The NHS is safe in our hands” and “There will be no top down reorganisation of the NHS under this government”. Presumably Mike was enthusiastically supporting these pledges at the time? Call me naive, but if an elected member of parliament chooses to ignore the the protests of his constituents, on the basis that he knows best, then I for one, would want to see a much better rationale than the one provided by Mike Weatherly here.
Unions? Pressure Groups? Utter nonsense. Mike, there are reds under the bed.
