Talking of spending cuts

with 3 comments

Good reasons why government and other publicly funded bodies should curtail their spending.
Yes, I know it was made for an American audience, but the message is pretty universal.

  1. Hi Curly,
    I didn’t manage to get the bill in about salaries for teachers and town hall staff into speech as I was told to wind it up.
    Sorry for the confusion over that but we are never given the lee way that Labour councillors are given

    • Suggest that all councillors listen to BBC Iplayer “File on 4” for Sunday 13th February which deals with effects of 35% cuts upon the working practices of Health and Safety Executive and extrapolate that into effects of cuts,and recruitment/resource/salary freezes upon LA frontline regulatory services that protect and advise local stakeholders.

  2. Cost of call out to and extinguishing of wheelie bin fire 2K; small every day example of what it may cost individuals/businesses if private sectorisation takes over frontline public services and we have to insure against or pay true cost of each service, which, in my opinion may well be the ultimate goal of Camthatcheritism.Public sector needs to publicise these costings eg true cost of reserving a library book, cost of “stars on the doors” env health inspection of small cafe etc.
