Kate Green pursues answers on Trafford General – Tory minister calls for chauffeur

Kate Green is working hard in Parliament to get assurances from health ministers over health provision in Manchester. Unfortunately, the Conservative minister they’ve allocated the task to is Simon Burns. This is a minister who in 9 months has already cost the taxpayer £41,000 in chauffeur (so tory!!) driven trips to and from his home. The NHS is not safe in Conservative hands. They no longer pretend it’s safe in Conservative hands. If they’re in a good mood after lunch, you might get a consultation before your hospital’s taken away. But they’re alright, they’ve got a chauffeur that we’re paying for. He’s probably got a Lib Dem to rest his feet on.

Can’t pretend I like the man. But why should I if he’s wrecking the NHS?
