11/12/08 – Labour MP misleads residents and local businesses and refuses to apologise!
North Swindon Labour MP Michael Wills wrote in Monday’s Swindon Advertiser that at a recent “Business Summit” to discuss the recession, “not a single Conservative Councillor bothered to attend”.
Cllr Dale Heenan, “I was astonished to read that the Labour MP would make such a misleading statement. The first I knew about this meeting was through this article, and at no point has the MP ever invited or written to me to let me know about it.
I therefore challenged him to send me a copy of my invitation to this event, and if no invite or letter was sent, I hoped he would be happy to correct his mistake and apologise.
In the first line of his reply, our MP accuses me of treating him with contempt for asking the question, and then goes on to deny that he mislead residents!
It is staggering the length’s that desperate Labour politicans are willing to go in order to cling onto their seat’s in Parliament. Only a Labour MP could claim someone couldn’t be bothered to go to his meetings, yet never invite them to attend!
