A local decision; Your say.

THE public must be looking on with bewildered dismay at both the Con/Dem Government and Labour arguing over response times for ambulances.

When we look across the range of different communities, the most strikingly obvious thing about each area is how obviously different one county is from another. That being the case, doesn't it make logical sense for "localism" to be the overriding principle when dealing with this matter.

Isn't it possible for each county to decide timescales on these issues in partnership with the recognised trade unions. After all, it's management on the ground and the service deliverers themselves, namely the ambulance crews, who know the localities and have the best understanding of what is achievable.
