BACK CRUSADE TO SAVE SHOPSOddly, there wasn't much 'crusading' going on once Lansley announced the coalition's monumental U-turn, nor any 'holding to account' since.
BRITAIN'S small shopkeepers and the Sunday Express join forces today to save our newsagents.

Shadow Health Minister Mike Penning said the Conservatives would seek to repeal Labour’s move if they win the election. The Sunday Express vows to hold the Tories to this pledge and to fight any other attempts to bring in this unfair legislation.
Not only that, but in just the one article above, we are presented with a perfect snapshot of unprincipled, venal, duplicitous and corrupt modern Britain.
We can forget any lingering idea of our government being by the people, for the people. It's them versus us now, no question.
