QE2 and Labour - Cllr Cowan suggests an apology is due

March 15, 2014 12:00 AM

I note that new Labour parliamentary candidate, in his statement to to Labour members, refers to the state of QE2 as 'a scar of Tory Treachery'.

Everyone who lived in Welwyn Hatfield in 2006-7 will remember how it was the Labour government which turned its back on its pre-election promise of a new hospital at Hatfield and told us we had to put up with QE2, except that, as a final insult, it would be downgraded.

All major parties had worked together for a new hospital. Just one party stabbed us in the back.

I suggest an apology is due.

Regards, Malcolm.

Message from Labour candidate:

... and the state of the QE2 are the scars of Tory treachery. Only with a change to Labour can the healing begin ...
