In Opposition, David Cameron vowed to save Chase Farm from an ‘unjustified’ top-down reorganisation, and promised a ‘bare-knuckle fight’ over the closure of local hospital services. In October 2007 he and fellow Tory Andrew Lansley even joined campaigners outside the hospital in a protest.
But in September 2011 Mr Lansley, as Health Secretary, approved the A&E closure.
So tell me Dave, what exactly did you save? Because it sure as Hell wasn’t this little boys life. By taking away this A&E Dept you have left sick people at risk. You took this little boys life away from him, you took a child from his parents and you took any last chance of people believing that you actually care. And when you and Lansley are standing in front of the media expressing your condolences for this little boys family, please tell me which faces will you be using because it is apparent to me that both of you are indeed completely two-faced. No doubt you will ensure you speak not as a politician but as a Father who has lost a child and whilst all losses are equally tragic whatever the circumstances there IS a difference. This child was lost through neglect, neglect by you and Lansley. And I hope this haunts you both forever.
So what will be your legacy Mr Cameron when you are finally toppled of your perch?
Broken promises, broken NHS and broken hearts.
