Let us be the defender of local government

So many reports going on about potential cuts in Local Government – we need to come out fighting for the role of local councillors putting forward our views on cutting more MPs and devolving power from the centre.

The Labour Government wants to have efficiency savings – I say cut Whitehall. There needs to be a debate NOW about a REDUCED role for Central Government and a beefed up role for our plucky Councils.

Of course it has political ramifications – the red/blue parties might be willing to throw their councils under the bus and get at us at the same time – those pesky popular Lib Dem local councils – we need to come out fighting defining a new role for local Councils.
