MPs should set a bet­ter ex­am­ple

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

IS John­son Fit to be MP?

In the same week you print a pic­ture of Boris John­son sur­rounded by in­no­cent pri­mary school chil­dren in a Hilling­don school, the na­tional and Lon­don pa­pers have printed a shame­ful pic­ture of John­son pos­ing with an AK47 au­to­matic weapon in Kur­dis­tan re­gion of Iraq.

One would hope that the per­son who will be an MP again in May should be set­ting a bet­ter ex­am­ple to the very young of this bor­ough that guns kill of­ten in­no­cent chil­dren all over the world!

The other in­ter­est­ing point about John­son’s world bid to be­come leader of the Tory party is his lack of in­ter­est in Uxbridge. In De­cem­ber he de­clined an in­vi­ta­tion to open the new ‘Acute Med­i­cal Unit’ at Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal which of course is in the con­stituency he will be rep­re­sent­ing af­ter May.

This would be more sur­pris­ing un­til you re­alise that the Jan­uary copy of ‘Uxbridge & South Ruis­lip in Touch’ cir­cu­lar from the lo­cal Tories very ex­pen­sive elec­tion cam­paign, there is not one men­tion of the NHS!

Still when you se­lect a can­di­date who sup­ports train link HS2 in di­rect op­po­si­tion to the claimed po­si­tion of lo­cal Tories, you should not be sur­prised.
