No shame

PUBLISHED: 12:35 15 October 2010

Liberal Democrat Councillor Terry Stacy has no shame. His Lib Dem-Conservative Government has cut £7million from Islington Council’s budget – including money for crime-fighting. They are threatening an unfair cut of up to £100million that would hit inner London communities, like Islington, harder than many.

But instead of apologising to the people of Islington, he has the cheek to blame the council when the Lib-Dem cuts hit our school PCSOs. Terry should come clean and say sorry to Islington for the damage his government is doing to our community. – Councillor Barbara Sidnell, executive member for community safety, Islington Council, Town Hall, Upper Street, N1.
