Don't stand up Gordon
"This is my pledge to the British people: I will not let you down. I will stand up for our schools and our hospitals. I will stand up for British values. I will stand up for a strong Britain. And I will always stand up for you."
That would be why my local 6-year old hospital is losing its maternity unit and its accident and emergency unit. Thanks to Brown and colleagues, everybody in my town will have to travel at least six miles on roads renowned for appalling traffic.
