UK Tories make flu a political issue

The home page of the British Conservative Party has an excerpt from a speech by Tory MP Andrew Lansley, criticizing Tony Blair's failure to deal with avian flu. Whatever the merits of the Tory argument, it's interesting to see that flu is becoming a political issue in the UK.

Here in North America, it's nothing of the sort—least of all after Katrina. And speaking as a member of Canada's New Democratic Party, I don't blame the politicians for that. I blame myself, for not raising a ruckus about it in my own constituency association and among my own NDP elected representatives.
