NO TO BUDGET CUTS AT CAMBRIDGESHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL! sign now

Cambridgeshire County Council has proposed 84 million of cuts to compensate for a shortfall in the 2010/11 budget (337 million). Similar cuts are proposed to councils around the country as local government is asked to claw back the massive bailouts to the banks and insurance firms.

The estimated 1.3 trillion which UK tax payers have coughed up in order to guarantee private city firms is triple the total combined local and national public spending on health, education, welfare, pensions and transport combined.

A cut in budget on this scale will have a severe impact on the services provided to the people of Cambridgeshire including, highways, libraries, adult care, young peoples services, mental health and some education services. Like all cuts it will be the most vulnerable who are hit hardest.

Ordinary people should not pay for the bankers crisis!

We the undersigned call on Cambridgeshire County Council to refuse to ratify this year's damaging and unjust budget. The Council should demand that central government makes up any budget shortfall that would lead to:


Loss of services
Privatisation of services
Worsening of conditions for council staff
An above inflation rise in Council Tax

    This just shows off the lack of original thinking there is in local government. Cuts are the most useless and oldest of techniques used to hide city mismanagement and incompetence. Investment in SMEs and new business growth has historically been proven to
