Late Breaking News?

More twists and turns in the Kingston Hospitalm saga - Councillor Mary Reid (Lib Dem) has written on her blog:

"The news has just broken that NHS London are threatening to close the Accident & Emergency department, and the Maternity Unit at Kingston Hospital."

If only the news had 'just broken', though - a quick check with registrar Nominet reveals that the domain name 'savekingstonhospital.org.uk' was registered by Susan Kramer on 11th December 2009 so this is hardly the breaking news that the Lib Dems are making it out to be.

Makes you wonder why Messrs Davey & Kramer sat on this news and planned their campaign for over a month and a half - unless, of course, you're going to be all cynical about the timing of this campaign and the impending general election.
