I do not find the way Simon Hughes
voted on the risk register suprising or disappointing, it is what I have come to expect of him. Remember student fees and loans, the EMA to name but two and now his support for a bill that is designed to destroy the NHS as a free, at the point of use,service.
We will hear from Mr. Hughes eventually some more of his weasel words trying to justify himself and why he actively supports the most right wing and anti common man government I have ever seen in this country but why did he vote against the risk register being made public? The government has been instructed by the courts to publish the register but refuses to do so until after Lansley's bill has been passed, you don't need the brains of Einstein to realise that publication of the register would sink the health bill in the water and Simon Hughes
knows that, so by voting against publication now he is doing all he can to make sure the bill gets through. We will remember at the next election his betrayal of the politics he professed to believe in so perhaps like some other ex MPs he should start lining up a well paid city job with the help of his new best friends.
