Tories put Shepherds Bush residents last

You may have heard that Shepherds Bush central line station will close for at least eight months from the beginning of February.

You would have thought that Hammersmith & Fulham council would have opposed the closure vigorously given how many residents use the station and will be affected. But no, they are happy to see it close according to Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, the Conservative council leader, in the local newspaper.

Never mind the inconvenience for the huge number of local people who use the station every day. Never mind the number of local businesses that will suffer as a result.

And don't forget how the Tories put Shepherds Bush residents last. Just imagine how agitated the Tories would have been if this had been Fulham Broadway, Parsons Green or Ravenscourt Park stations.
