“People in Rochdale are in no doubt about how they want their taxes spent. They don't want money squandered on nuclear weapons of mass destruction. They want decent care services for their parents, their grandparents and for their children. People were, again, signing letters as fast as we could produce them. In a week when the Pennine Acute Trust has admitted that it could be stopping key services at Rochdale Infirmary as soon as autumn this year, this is obviously a crucial issue for all of us. It is no surprise that we have another large bungle of letters to send to the Secretary of State for Health.
