Local MP late for BBC!
Local Newport MP and self-confessed libelist Paul Flynn was late for a BBC Radio Wales interview on July 4th. After a visit to the Newport constituency slum of Pillistan the ageing MP admitted on his blog to driving his car to Tredegar in 25 minutes instead of the normal 50 minutes in would take. Not good for someone who is recovering from a stroke and has already had one car accident on the M4 this year. It was ironic that the interview was on 60 years of the NHS with this danger to the public nearly ending up on a hospital morgue table!
