”If you’re unaware of the extraordinary budgetary challenges faced by local authorities, it must mean that you live on another planet – or you’re Iain Duncan Smith. Despite being firmly ensconced at the heart of an austerity-obsessed government, the secretary of state for work and pensions appears blissfully unaware of the way cuts are implemented by councils in and around his Chingford and Woodford Green constituency. Much like his boss David Cameron, when he expressed horror in a letter to his local council about the level of cuts it was making.”
Thanks to NLAT for the link. And let’s not forget ToriCon MP Watford Rich Harrington who was seen ironically posing for one of his many ”I’m working for Watford” photo ops with some Watford residents who were actually stabbed in the back by his party when more cuts to council grants were made recently.
