I REFER to Ronin Taylor's letter in the Gazette of June 12.
When Mr Sharma has friends like him, he doesn't need enemies. Mr Taylor, you have exposed that while I was able to organise and submit a petition signed by 1,862 to retain the stroke unit at the Ealing Hospital, Mr Sharma did nothing during the consultation period.
Mr Taylor should stop scare-mongering about Conservative policies. David Cameron has made clear that despite the awful state of the public finances, the NHS is one area that will be protected as the next Conservative government begins to pay off Labour's debt.
Mr Taylor must know that it is the Labour government's policies that have created more than two million unemployed, record bankruptcies and the fact every child born today is born with a debt of £22,500.
The fact is that it is under a Labour government that proposals have been put forward to close the stroke unit.
The Labour Party, its councillors and its MP did nothing within the consultation period to keep the unit at the Ealing hospital and are now trying to jump on the bandwagon with various antics, and I would still say better late than never.
My commitment to the residents of Ealing Southall is that I will never ride roughshod over local people. As far as my political future is concerned, please don't lose your sleep over it because it looks pretty rosy to me.
Across Ealing Borough, in Euro elections, Labour has lost 7,354 votes when compared with 2004. Conservatives gained the second biggest swing out of 33 London boroughs.
In Wales, Conservatives came on top from nowhere - and all over the UK - and Labour's share has
plummeted to 15 per cent behind the UKIP.
However, my absolute promise to the residents of Ealing Southall is that irrespective of the position I hold I will continue to serve them, without making any distinction between their political affiliation, to the best of my ability.
