Despite high P3 costs, Birmingham Labour seat holds

Recently UK’s The Independent reported a new P3 (PFI) hospital in Birmingham had the potential to affect the outcome of the national election in that city. Gisele Stuart, the sitting Labour MP, was considered to be at risk given the Queen Elizabeth Hospital was to cost taxpayers almost three times its building cost in interest and service costs. As an update, Ms. Stuart was able to hang on to her seat, although several nearby Midlands constituencies did fall to the Conservatives. Interesting enough, we did have a message sent to us from a ‘Gisela’ in the UK who denied that constituents had even heard of this issue despite the article in The Independent. Could this have been the same Gisela Stuart?
