Birmingham now stands to lose half its discretionary budget by 2017, a move Albert Bore has labelled “the end of local government as we know it”, but failed to really argue or stand up against austerity, merely accepting the cuts as imposed on the council by central government.
We encourage everyone to attend these meetings, to ensure that Albert and the labour councillors know that we want them to fight these cuts and defend the council services that Birmingham residents rely on every day.
There will be a special meeting of Birmingham against the Cuts on Monday 26th November at 6.00pm in the UNISON Bham Branch office at 19th Floor McClaren Tower Priory Queensway, B4 7SL. This is to discuss our response to “The end of local government” and related matters.
