‘Children’s Minister Ed Timpson agreed to spend 45 minutes at the two-hour meeting, but was forced to leave after 20 minutes because of other urgent business.’
‘His colleague Disabilities Minister Esther McVey also agreed to attend but cancelled because she had a ‘diary clash’. Yet the former breakfast TV presenter did turn up. Rosa said: ‘She swanned in a few minutes before the end, announced she wouldn’t speak because she didn’t like to shoot from the hip, and walked off at the end. It was a disgrace.’
Rosa said the parents had made complex childcare arrangements to get to the meeting and were deeply unimpressed by the ministers’ failure to listen properly. So much for the compassionate Tories.’
GovWatch – Esther McVey is Tory Crumpet and of course she shoots off but we’ll say no more about that…. Disability is a serious issue and it would be wonderful if the Tories took it seriously instead of posting these two Bozos onto it.
