Had Labour got in, their cuts would have been in the region of £14bil, the coalitions are likely to be in the region of £16bil. So you see the alternative is just as grim. On the other hand, I am quite sure that a Labour government would have punished other councils in order to lessen funding cuts to MCC.
But regardless, David Cameron is right. What adds insult to injury is that the chief execs are being paid wayyyyy too much and have been in power at MCC for way too long for that matter.
MCC could easily lessen the funding cut blow to essential services/workers within the council. But like I've said before Leese and his cronies are defiant and want to make a political statement by hitting back at the coalition.
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what I say... The cuts will happen and we'll all have to get used to it!
