Finally, an elected Member of Parliament showing some passion! This is Tom Watson, the MP for West Bromwich East where I work at the YMCA.
It’s with reference to the Government withdrawing funding for nine schools in Sandwell to have new builds. I understand that there need to be stacks of cuts if we’re to stabilise the country but to take this away from young people in Sandwell is utterly heartbreaking. I have never experienced a community where so many people are working so hard together in such messy situations and if anybody deserves a break it is the people of Sandwell.
I am disappointed that Michael Gove has not fulfilled his promise to visit Sandwell. I think this is cowardly behaviour.
Also, how funny that ‘miserable pipsqueak’ is such an offensive term…no wonder Gove is nervous of coming to West Brom, he’ll get a bit worse than that there!
