Greed is good Thatcher

It looks like Sheffield households will be facing a rise of around 2 per cent on their bills if the council go ahead with proposed increases.

Seems rather strange that every Labour-run council in the land do the Tories’ bidding on austerity so meekly without even a whimper.

Something expected from the ‘vermin’ but never from Labour?

It’s also nice to see that Barnsley MBC, in cahoots with SYPTE, have saved around £2 million by continuing to carry out Tory austerity policy in halving, by underspending, on OAPs’ travel concessions on South Yorkshire trains.

Where’s the £2 million saving of OAP’s concessions going?

Definitely not back to help pensioners with travel we are informed.

No doubt more acknowledgments from “call me Dave” will be forthcoming for all those so-called local Labour councillors who put their hands up in voting for and continuing to vote for Tory austerity that hits the most vulnerable, while still maintaining their over-generous allowances.

It’s no good saying they should be ashamed, simply because they wouldn’t understand what the word meant.

Why people keep giving them their votes is beyond comprehension, they wouldn’t be out of place in a “greed is good” Thatcher cabinet.

She also had a charmed life, but eventually she got her just deserts.
