More and more people of all political persuasions say there has to be a fairer and more united way back to future national profitability. This is your opportunity to add your voice to the growing wave of opposition.
As a double-dip recession looms larger than we would all hope, more and more mainstream commentators now question the vast sweep of Coalition spending cuts, which locally extend well beyond cutting universally-loathed “red tape” to threaten valued frontline services, like street cleaning, lollipop men and women and our highly-rated Music School and Drama Centre. Even popular Goodmayes Library is under threat.
PS There are some seriously excellent South Indian restaurants in Ilford for your post-meeting Valentine’s meal.
