What will they do now?

HAVING used Kingswood Park care home at March as a political football in the run up to the local elections, I wonder what the local Conservatives are going to do now that closure has been confirmed.

The fact that the county council had cancelled funding for block bookings was pretty well the last straw in this sad state of affairs but no mention of that was made by the councillors concerned at the time.

They were happy to allow Methodist Homes and Sanctuary Housing take all the blame.

Surely our county councillors Messrs Clark, Yeulett and Count could have put pressure on the powers that be to at least extend the funding for another six months or so to enable a more reasonable consultation period to take place rather than present the staff, residents and their families with more or less a very distressing fait accompli?
