Daily Echo Letter

Political expediency?
JOHN Denham says the Strategic Health Authority should put its plan to fluoridate our water 'on hold'. He concedes that he still agrees with mass medication of our water against our wishes but in this instance he wants to listen to public opinion.
On the face of it this looks like a classic case of political opportunism. If he was so concerned about public opinion wouldn't he be lobbying his friend Gordon Brown for an early general election?
We know that only 15 per cent of people voted Labour in the last election so what's the difference?
He obviously only wants to listen to his constituents when it's politically expedient to do so.
ROYSTON SMITH, Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Southampton Itchen.
