Don’t rub it in

While Hartlepool Borough councillors and members of the public attend a meeting to express concerns about the plight of services at the University Hospital of Hartlepool, the council leader and his partner are pictured cuddling cats in Thailand, apparently oblivious to the concerns about our hospital.

By all means have a holiday, but don’t rub the noses of the people who elected you by posting cuddly pictures all over the internet.
