One oft he areas it seems that Labour is hoping to make a dividing line withthe Tories is the classic "Tory cuts". In an article posted by Sir Jeremy Beecham, Leader of the LGA Labour Group on LabourList he calls on Labour councillors and activists to let them know about Tory and Lib Dem cuts.
You'll note that he does not mention Labour cuts because as we all know the Labour Party never cut anything right? Wrong. Take a look at the budgets over the last few years in the London Borough of Greenwich for proof.
Only just before Christmas there was outrage from the local Unison members that the council was to cut funding for Childrens Services. This was a matter of weeks after the Baby P incident. Now there are school closures in the name of "reconfiguration".
Just thought I'd point this out. If anyone else living in a Labour controlled area is experiencing service cuts do add them in the comments.
