CLLR Gez Kirby’s convenient do nothing to oppose the cuts get out clause of councils being “legally required to set a balanced budget” is at best totally pathetic and oozes with a contempt towards those who elected him to office. When injustice occurs through a legally set law do you prostrate yourself before it Cllr Gez Kirby, no matter what the harm done, or do you fight it? Social change for the better, mostly gained by workers in struggle, has not come about by respecting laws!
It really doesn’t matter who oversees the cuts, be they council officers or councillors. The very fact that they are being imposed is the actual problem. You have a duty of care to everyone in your ward so any targeting should come into the equation! If we fail to act urgently against this Con/Dem Government’s ideological attack now we can say goodbye to any form of local democracy and social provision. It’s that serious!
