I've just finished a full council meeting where we have the usual occurrences: Council Leader Mick Henry referred to my blog and an eminently sensible proposal from the Lib Dems was rejected by Labour. We also had some Labour posturing and pseudo-rage about the Coalition. This is likely to be an unofficial item on all future council meetings.
Today's "rage" was about cuts brought in by the Government. Labour claim they will put growth at risk. That leaves me wondering why they do not feel the same about the huge cuts Labour made in April to local government. In Gateshead they amounted to something in the region of £12 million. Surely a case of Labour collective amnesia?
