Where is John Penrose?

YOUR A&E AT WESTON GENERAL HOSPITAL WILL BE CLOSED FROM 10PM UNTIL 8AM EVERY NIGHT FROM TONIGHT.

Weston Labour Party members have today been protesting outside of Weston General Hospital, alongside Protect Our NHS, Local activists, Green party members, Unison, Unite, Prospect, PCS, ATL, NUT, and other Union's members.

We are protesting as part of our joint campaigns to stop the dangerous overnight closure of West General Hospital's Accident and Emergency Department.  Representatives have also also attended the Weston Area Health Trust Board meeting today.

Amongst those at the protest and meeting were Tim Taylor, Labour Candidate for Weston-super-Mare, and Tessa Munt from Wells Liberal Democrats.

But no sign at all of Weston-super-Mare MP John Penrose?  We have to ask ourselves why he wasn't there this morning at the protest or the meeting.

Perhaps it's because he lives in London?
Perhaps because he supports the dismantling of our NHS by his failed government?
Perhaps he doesn't care about the sick, ill, and vulnerable people who's lives may be at risk because of teh Overnight closure of A&E?

It's time for the Conservative party to recognise the truth, that they have failed and are failing this country and it's communities.

Thank you to the BBC, ITV, The Weston Mercury, The Western Daily Press, and others from the media for coming down to cover our protest today.
