Disappointed by Wirral MP’s political platitudes

Wirral Globe: Esther McVey MP Esther McVey MP

FURTHER to the two letters published recently: Not a Penny and Wrong message at Christmas with implicit criticisms of Esther McVey, I would like to share my experience of dealing with Wirral West's MP.

I wrote asking Ms McVey's advice about a friend's desperate situation: A retired pensioner-carer-housewife with a rapidly deteriorating dementia-suffering husband, who was informed that neither she nor her husband qualified for free "point of delivery" health service.

This is in direct contradiction to Government boasts.

I was astounded to receive a three-page reply telling me how, under this administration, there are now 1,300 more midwives, 5,700 more doctors, 6,800 fewer managers and rehearsing all the well-known details of caps of liability to pay, etc – none of which information was of any help whatsoever to me in advising my friends.

A party political and platitudinous answer to my sincere request for advice.

I wrote to her again, expressing my disappointment, and naturally have received no reply.

I have seen her in action twice on television, and what a display of arrogance and bad manners, on both occasions she had nothing constructive to say, just the usual promotion of her odious party and to apportion blame for all the ills of the world past and present on the previous government, the old adage empty pans make the most noise springs to mind.

Sorry to hear of your plight Mike but this is another nasty Tory piece of work who is only concerned with her own publicity. It truly is the nasty party.

Like the leadership of the Conservative party that seems to exist on a web of half truths and fiction, to try and pull the wool over the general public's eyes, She, Miss McVey, who lives only doors away from a young man, who is in serious need of support from Social Services, yet she cannot see the negative effect this is having on a truly wonderful unpretentious and very talented family. So what chance do the rest of us have of getting support from the is X -list media, Queen Bee.
