Care minister’s ‘claptrap’ PR highlights Tory hypocrisy
Tory front-bencher Helen Whately tweeted video of herself – which she must have arranged to have someone record – clapping for front-line health and care staff last night.
But Whately is barely a week from a car-crash interview in which she squirmed as she was challenged over her 2017 vote to block a pay-rise for nurses and other public service staff – and the Tories’ cheers as they succeeded:
She must not be allowed to forget or whitewash her and her party’s real attitude to our front-line heroes.
