I have a new fan, Liberal PPC Daisy!

“With the retirement of Martin Salter – a popular, hard-working constituency MP.”  http://daisybenson.com/page/Reading-West.aspx Ooh I feel loved. Shame she looks so cross.

Residents living in and around Oxford Road are still waiting for the new Battle Health Centre to be developed – something Reading West Martin Salter MP and Battle councillor Tony Jones campaigned for all those years ago. It was supposed to be built in 2009. Back in 2004, Martin Salter said:“Local doctors’ surgeries are pretty full around here and there is a need for more NHS dentists as well as a range of specialist services that can be delivered locally without people having to trek across town to the Royal Berks,” he said. “It is great news that Reading PCT has identified the Battle site for a local centre.” I agree with Martin – delivering services locally is what’s needed – it reduces the need to travel and ensures everyone gets fair access to those services. The major fly on the ointment as far as this scheme is concerned is that it can only be built when the housing on the former Battle Hospital site is sold. The recession is basically to blame. This is a great shame. A lot of local residents must be feeling very disappointed about this after all the promises from Labour both locally and nationally. It must be disappointing for Martin Salter too that the Centre won’t be built during his time in Parliament as Member for Reading West after his campaigning on this issue. I will continue to campaign for better access to healthcare for all Reading residents irrespective of where they live, and continue to press the PCT and the Council at every opportunity to speed things up on the ground.

‘Disapointing for Martin’? What about his failure to ensure that it happens. Could it be that with an election coming, Liberals have been told to lay of Labour in the hope of forming a coalition? This would explain why they could’t join with the Tories in the recent budget. In this love triangle the Libs love the Labs, the Labs are so deserate they are willing to love the Libs right back. The poor old Tories must feel well left out in the cold.

A few days before she wrote ‘Somehow Gordon Brown found time in his busy schedule to visit Reading today. Lucky Reading!’ Beggining to smell a rat?

And before this On Pincents Hill  ‘The local politicians of all political colours who have actively supported the local grassroots campaign including local MP Martin Salter also deserve praise for their hard work on this issue which has helped to protect this vital open space.’ Feeling A bit nauseous now.
