The Game’s Up

I was going to blog today how the game’s up for Labour, but that can keep for another day.
There’s a small minority party -- “the third party” -- who are now resorting to desperate measures to save their seats.
They’ve started this rumour that Kingston Hospital is set to close. A classic wheeze, because they can then campaign to keep it open, and claim the credit when it stays open. Meanwhile everyone gets worried, both patients and staff, and recruitment suffers.
The Conservative Party is the only British political party committed to increasing NHS expenditure, and specifically would impose an immediate moratorium on closures of A&E (Emergency Room) and maternity units nationwide -- services allegedly threatened at Kingston. For more see Helen Whately.
So I warn the third party party: “Be careful what your stir”.
