Are Labour ministers learning from the Lib Dems Campaign Strategy?

No matter that the recent proposed local hospital closures are done for perfectly reasonable (though counter-intuitive) clinical improvements in service provision, it is just too easy to jump on the 'save our hospital' bandwagon.

Rather than try to explain the policy, even Labour ministers have jumped on this disingenuous bandwagon and resorted to Lib Dem 'tell them what they want to hear' posturing tactics where you have completely opposite policies from ward to ward just to look good to a particular electorate.

The closing local hospitals are not about funding, they are about improving services. I know the distorting press make things difficult, but do we really have to give up the ghost like this?
