Postcode lotteries

Welsh Lib Dem leader Mike German said a couple of days ago that 'politicians need to feel comfortable with 'postcode lotteries'', as an inevitable consequence of localism.

It's almost too easy, but here are some examples of Mr German's colleagues feeling comfortable with postcode lotteries...

...in Hampshire...

Liz Leffman, Prospective Liberal Democrat MP for Meon Valley, is "deeply concerned" to learn that the 'postcode lottery' for cancer treatment across Britain means that Hampshire patients lose out.

...in Haringey...

'Postcode lottery for recycling in Stroud Green, say Lib Dems'

...in Norwich...

Lib Dems expose STD clinic postcode lottery

...when it comes to services for the elderly...

Elderly face postcode lottery for National Health care

...in Dundee...

Dundee Lib Dems criticise 'Freeview Postcode Lottery'

...amongst dentists...

Postcode lottery for dental care unacceptable - Lamb

... and in York...

Lib Dems slam plans to cap fire service cash

The difference between Mike German and the rest of the Lib Dems quoted above? Mike German is standing down after the elections in May.

Personally, I think we need to end this postcode lottery when it comes to whether or not Lib Dems support postcode lotteries.
