Horror at council’s plans to make more cuts
10:21am Thursday 13th December 2012 in Letters
I HAVE just received, and read with horror, a community news leaflet which sets out our council’s plans to make more cuts.
To my disgust one of their future measures is to remove the discount to pensioners on their council tax.
Where does the council expect these people to find the money to pay this increase? No doubt our pensioners will have to cut back on all the luxury items such as food and heating that they spend their massive pensions on.
I find it astounding that these councillors can attack the most vulnerable in our society, just to balance the books.
May I suggest if the councillors feel so desperate to make savings, they should lead by example and take a cut in their own salaries and expense accounts.
