News – But Not Reported in the Cambridge Evening News

If you read today's Cambridge News, you would think that only the Labour and Liberal Democrats spoke at the public meeting on Post Office closures.

Speaking as a member of the Question Time-style panel, Conservative spokesman Richard Normington said, "The Government doesn't know what it is doing. It can't make up its mind if the Post Office is there to make money and maximise profit or to provide a social service and public value. I believe Post offices are a vital part of our social fabric and local community and they must be preserved."

He added, "It is highly hypocritical of Labour ministers to propose closures nationally and then oppose them in their own back yards. If Gordon Brown's own the cabinet thinks the policy is bad, what are we to make of it?"
