Another important piece from Pride’s Purge, who continue to pick up on big stories that the national media don’t take enough notice of. It’s also weird that in the week that I argued that Labour in Scotland are copying Nicola Murray in The Thick Of It by embracing Tory cuts, we have the issue of coastguards coming up, which of course was one of the issues that Murray haplessly alighted upon to try and highlight the opposition’s ‘credibility’. Once again, life is imitating satire……….

UPDATE – This government cock-up could cost Tory MP Oliver Letwin his West Dorset seat at the next election!
More than half of the voters in his constituency have signed a petition protesting against the scrapping of the Portland rescue helicopter as part of government plans to cut coastguard and rescue services. See here for more info.
