It's been a bad week for our PM.
Eight of Britain's greatest cities have told Pooter that they can do without his services. This brings the total of councils leaving to twenty! As we know, when this sort of exodus occurs the floodgates open.
|I've still got ten members left!|
To rub salt in the wound Pooter’s fat friend, Mr Pickles, just announced that he was cutting £2 million of LGA funding.
Were that not bad enough eight of England’s leading cities, including Newcastle, have given notice that they would be giving up their LGA membership.
Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield have decided to leave the LGA. They sneeringly claim that their own lobby, “Core Cities’ was better equipped to win lucrative ‘city deals’.
These ‘core cities’are the main drivers of the UK economy.
With the quitting of these ‘power cities’ the reign of Pooter has seen twenty councils fleeing his bloated and flaccid quango.
A furious Merrick Cockell described the Departmental cut as "completely unexpected".
His 'talking head' said, "The extremely short timeframe makes it very difficult to plan the necessary savings. We have already made more than £16m in cuts over the last four years ... it is astonishing that the government has announced this cut just two weeks ahead of the start of the financial year."
So much for Pooter having mates in high places.....
