I'd just like to congratulate Andrea Stephenson the Conservative PPC for Linlithgow and Falkirk on not adding any news item to her own website since this day last year. Boy it must have been a really slow news year.
Maybe all the credit crunch stuff is not important to the people she is seeking to represent. The whole situation over HBOS and the RBS are irrelevant. But what about local issues and things that are affecting their everyday lives, don't they warrant any comment whatsoever. What about the fuel crisis and the effect it may have on Grangemouth or the rising cost of food or fuel for everyone stretching to make ends meet. Or anything about the Sun Microsystems pending job losses, or the Springfield development removing the nursing home from their planning application.
Maybe she is too cocooned in her Edinburgh office to find out what is affecting the people of Linlithgow, Grangemouth, Bathgate, Whitburn and elsewhere in Linlithgow and Falkirk East. She clearly is "in a unique position to help residents of Linlithgow and East Falkirk" being unable to find anything newsworthy for the people of the constituency for the last twelve months.
One thing that does appear to be true is that no matter is important to the people of Linlithgow and Falkirk East these last 366 days has not warrented anything new in the Conservatives eye.
