Keeping up with the Joneses

Martyn Jones MP really needs to visit his constituency more often.

It seems he's put a press release out calling for free prescriptions for his constituents in Clwyd South:

Mr Jones says "I'm concerned about the number of people with long-term conditions in my constituency who may be choosing to go without vital medicines as a result of the recession and the rising costs of fuel and other bills. Gordon Brown was right to promise free prescriptions for people with long-term conditions, but he must now follow through and implement this promise as soon as possible."

The only problem is that his constituents live in Wales and already get free prescriptions. No doubt the generic Labour HQ press release didn't point out to Labour MPs that it only applied to England.

Luckily Jones retires next year so will not need to worry about keeping up with the news.

It's quite interesting Googling such words as "fact-finding mission" along with his name. It's really quite sad, and I don't believe he's anywhere near the only one of those absentee landlord unionist MPs.
