COUN Julie Dore’s Viewpoint on ‘what we will do if elected in May’ is a further reminder of what Labour failed to do on Sheffield’s budget day.
They could have offered their own budget or an amendment to the Lib Dem budget but tabled no proposals.
Nor did they support the Green amendment which found £2.3 million to protect key services like Sure Start, Police Community Support Officers, day-care for the elderly and Citizens Advice. Labour abstained, allowing the Lib Dem cuts budget to go through unchanged.
Cuts are happening all around. By May, redundancies will have been made and services downsized or closed. We provide the only real opposition to cuts.
