Now when austerity measures started over seven years ago, Tories at the Town Hall used to fulminate against opposition councillors who talked about “cuts in services” and instead declared such measures were about “efficiency” and reducing waste etc
Now as far as I can see, for all the bluster, this #StandUpForPeterborough essentially involves senior Tories having a day out in London, presumably at the expense of local tax payers, and then handing in a strongly worded letter to downing street?
“Like the senior bods in Whitehall, give a monkeys about the Boro Cons or what they think!!”
It’s my opinion that, the Conservatives (who’ve been in power at the Town Hall for 17 years), have run out of ideas and things/services to sell, hence they’ve decided to launch this campaign.
Why did they not launch this campaign several years ago when front-line staff were losing their jobs?
Perhaps, now that roles of senior and better paid peeps at the Town Hall are under threat, that’s the reason?
“It’s a bit like someone who mugs you, then offering to help you find the person who mugged you?”
Also, let’s not forget that these are the same Tories who have been making financial contributions to, supporting and encouraging others to vote for, the Conservative Party in Government?
So they are the ones who have enabled us to reach this financially impractical position?
The reality is, there is ONLY one way to ensure an end to Government austerity measures, and that’s to STOP voting Conservative at local and general elections!
