Happy 65th Birthday NHS! We will defend you!

On Wednesday evening during the West Ham CLP fund raising event local Newham MPs Lyn Brown, Stephen Timms and Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls helped us celebrate the 65th anniversary of the birth of the National Health Service (today 5 July).

Sitting are former UNISON presidents Dave Anderson (now MP) and Norma Stephenson (Labour Cllr and member of Labour Party NEC). While UNISON candidate for London MEP Sanchia Alaisa is 2nd from left.

Why would you put invite Ed Balls. He screwed up the economy (along with Gordon Brown). Labour want his man to economy.

Then you have Lyn Brown, who has a job for life, so does n't have to work so hard to represent her constituents. I have written to her several times, never had so much as a reply.

Is this true?

"It's mostly in the area of dining that Ed Ball's seemed unable to prevent his team enjoying themselves to the max at our expense. On a trip to New York, while staying at the luxury boutique-styled Benjamin hotel in Manhattan, they treated themselves to more than £820 of food at the Bar Americain. Back home in the UK there were also a couple of orders from Domino’s Pizza, amounting to over £150, as well a single meal costing £450 at the Cinnamon Club, one of the top Indian restaurants in London. But there was also a £165 bill on two occasions at John Lewis, and £420 at La Maison du Cygne, a restaurant in Brussels.

If Ed Ball's had invested his own money into a private business and wanted to spend his profits in this way it would be fine. But Ed Ball's office wasn't a private business, and it didn't make any money. It's difficult enough to see taxes being imposed on almost every economic activity in the UK, especially when it is not clear that the money taken from us is not well spent. But to see our taxes being used to wine and dine Ministers and officials in restaurants that most of us won't get the chance to visit is a difficult pill to swallow."

Why is there such a rubbish opposition in Newham?

Personality obsessives with no politics?
