Minister of State for Disabled People visits Watford

Watford Observer: Minister of State for Disabled People visits Watford Minister of State for Disabled People visits Watford

A charity in Watford was visited by the Minister of State for Disabled People this week.

Mike Penning MP visited Watford Workshop, which provides work experience, skills training and employment for people of working age with physical, mental and sensory disabilities and/or learning difficulties.

More than 60 disabled and disadvantaged service users attend the Workshop over the period of a year under two schemes - health and community services and work choice.

The Minister commended the workshop’s recent success in assisting two disabled people to obtain full time employment at Morrison’s recently opened Watford supermarket and emphasised that continued efforts must be a priority.

Rich Harrington must foresee trouble ahead with all these high profile Tories turning up in Watford.

Penning too might be in for a shock given the number of Lib Dem PPC's defecting to Labour in Hertfordshire, including Professor Richard Grayson who was the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Hemel Hempstead in the 2005 and 2010 general elections and a former vice-chair of the Liberal Democrat federal policy committee – he left the Lib Dem party in July 2013 having become disillusioned with Lib Dem broken promises in Government. I wonder can't help wondering how many more of fellow travellers there are amongst Hemel Hempstead Lib Dem voters and supporters

You have made a very obvious point which has not gone unnoticed as with after 4 years the sudden timed much hyped movement of women into the Cabinet with an election on the horizon.

Just wondering given the ethnic diversity of such a marginal seat, whether you think millionaire Sajid Javid Secretary of State for Culture will be bought in to add some colour to a rather one dimensional approach.

And as regards, the broken litany of Liberal promises ‘You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time’.
