Labour should fight the cuts

I WENT (with my partner and four-year-old music loving daughter) to the GMSS anti-cuts protest at the Civic Centre and was puzzled as to why there were Conservative and Liberal Democrat councillors present.(Unless of course they oppose the cuts made by the Con/Dem government on the Labour controlled council’s budget?)
Obviously Cllr Bob Bright and his fellow cohorts should show some backbone and front-up and actually fight these cuts and not timidly kowtow before the government’s ideologically driven rollback of public and social services. Such political cowardice put on public display is rather nauseating and reveals Newport Labourites are certainly not socialists! They should represent and listen to those who elected them and refuse to do this government’s dirty work for them. It’s pathetic and a total disgrace and reveals a lack of morality and empathy.
