Boris Johnson wants to close down 17 local London fire stations. Fire Brigades Union chief, Paul Embery, describes this as the biggest threat to the service since it's heroic work firefighting during the Blitz.
We live in a topsy turvy world....one minute we are told there is no money to maintain an essential service: the next Boris and Pooter Cockell splash out close to £30 million tarting up Exhibition Rd!
We need our local fire stations: without them our lives are put at risk.
It would have come as no surprise to hear Boris claiming that closing down stations would actually enhance response times!
