Looks like more money is being printed to stimulate the economy in the Good old USA and over here.interest rates look like dropping to an all time low and the Condems have no bloody idea what to do. The funny part is the Labour Benches sit silent great when you are in opposition you sit there say nothing and hope the voters don’t notice, seems to have worked in the past for labour don’t be fooled this time.Ask any Labour politician local or National for a view i bet he sounds like homer Simpson when you get your answer…
Stick ID cards in to the equation we have a lot of pennies being chucked down the drain. Reality is that is why they where voted out, it’s not just National Labour,Salford are just as bad take a look, if you wish me to direct you drop me a line.
No not my words page 17 of today’s daily mail Newspaper. Worth a read you can make your own mind up. Sad all this from a party whose leader topped the Television debates less than a year back a party that seemed to be growing and fresh with new ideas,today the outcast of the British Political System.Was it Wilson who said a weeks a long time in politics?perhaps he should have said a year.
My My Cllr Antrobus why would you force our regeneration on to our foreign cousins.Broughton ,Langworthy, etc etc Regenerations Labour style. The buggers must be desperate.
It was Sad to read the Headlines last week in our local Rag in regard to the lack of School places within the City. Was this something that happened over night? No ,like any city across The Country you would hope there is a planed response, you would presume that any Council worth it’s salt would take in to account growth, a possible swell of migrant workers and of course the Birth rate. You would presume even a simple task of estimated need over the past 10 to 20 years and look closely at any patterns that emerge. For my part I found reading the column more frustrating due to the fact that I was tasked with the Role of Children’s services spokesman over five years ago when I sat with the Liberal Democrat Group within Salford Council. Of Course you are working within a small Group of people and in the Role of opposition but you still analyse the Councils plans and offer either support or your concerns. I was Lucky at the time to work with the Cllr For Weaste Cllr Ainsworth ,the analytical Way he had broken down the statistics and offered an outcome was sad to say what we see today, school shortages and lack of capacity. The reality was no one on the Labour Benches showed any interest to our Concerns or the statistics. What we have today is a failure to listen we all understand Labour Control this city
But if they choose not to listen I start to worry are we seeing the pack mentality starting to rear it’s head? i don’t know but I fear for the future these issues could have been dealt with sensible, but what we see is a city that seems to struggle just to meet it’s statutory responsibilities. Education today what will we see tomorrow.? Our Council leader Boast of people coming to live here did he not imagine their children would come also.
“Our first big decision was to clear the structural deficit this parliament. To wipe the slate clean by 2015. This has meant painful cuts. Agonisingly difficult decisions. Not easy, but right.”
“Let’s say the Conservative government announced … ‘we’re gonna slash public spending by a third and we’re going to do it tomorrow because we have to take early tough action’ just imagine what my south west Sheffield constituents would think.”
