Wellington News

Further to mine (and other peoples) concerns that Mark didn't give a toss about 'the Wrekin' the Wellington News (I say news....that's for another time) loves Mark to bits!

This weeks edition features Mark a massive 5 times - including a 'Wellington News Exclusive' on page 20. So lets have a look at our new MP shall we? Most of us haven't seen him.

First and main story is the very serious piece about the local hospital.

My problem is the 2 page special where Mark talks about HIS CAMPAIGN and 'MY CAMPAIGN' non stop and uses the very real threat of losing services to gripe and snipe at Telford MP David Wright and Labour. Fair enough, I'm not a massive fan of Labour government at the moment but trying to 'SAVE OUR HOSPITAL' is not the place to do it. Unless of course you're hoping to please Tory HQ in the process.

Mark also mentions (yet again) how HE has been warning people for THREE YEARS that this might happen. Now I don't know a lot about Mark (who does?) but I do know he was candidate for Warley in 2001 - 4 years ago. What's he been doing since then? Cause I for one hadn't heard of him till early this year. funny that.

Self congratulation brings me on to the next story - the car parking charges. Yay.

'Mr Pritchard was heavily involved in the local campaign to have the charges scrapped...' - again, no heaviness until election time then I suspect it was 'right, what are the people worked up over, lets go with parking charges'. I hate to praise Peter Bradley but he along with Vic Tonks of Telford & Wrekin People's Association did most of the work Mark Pritchard just jumped on the bandwagon.

Why worry about parking when you spending most of your time in London asking questions about Trident?

Here's mark learning where Waters Upton is.

And finally here's Mark opening Kip In Pace - Drop in Centre for drug users but couldn't resist taking the the opportunity to over shadow a good service by having a dig about the Government re-classifying Cannabis - because Cannabis today = Heroin tomorrow. Did you never watch Grange Hill?
