Starving Labour controlled councils of money (23/09/16)

Colleagues,

Please find a few minutes to read the attached article from today’s Guardian by John Harris (Friday 23 September 2016)

As we have known for some years the Tories are deliberately starving Labour controlled Councils of the money they need to provide a decent level of service.

This article demonstrates why Labour Council Leaders are being deliberately forced to make huge cuts to central services due to massive central Government cuts.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/sep/23/tories-labour-councils-ministers-conservative-shires#comments

What we are all doing to strengthen our membership and fight alongside our Labour controlled Councils has never been more important. We will only have the strength to defeat this appalling Government if we stay united.

Best wishes

Linda Crowther
Branch Secretary
