Fluoride 'shows democracy is dead'
YOUR headline "Fluoride plans axed (but not for us)" (Daily Echo, September 13) says it all really. The North West Health Authority has realised that the escalating cost of fluoridating its water supply is not a viable proposition, but the local Strategic Health Authority has been given another year of tenure to implement its ill-founded proposal to go ahead with fluoridating our supply regardless of cost or local opinion.
The Coalition Government has reneged on its promise to let the people decide, and simply rolled over to let the SHA do as it wishes. Democracy is dead. It beggars belief.
