Be afraid - part three

"We cannot afford to care." So said Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, Tory leader of H&F council, at its AGM last night.

Just days after the elections on 6 May, one local voluntary organisation was told that funding for its long-established summer playscheme for disabled children has been cut - a few weeks before it was due to take place.

hfconwatch will be monitoring Tory council cuts as they grapple with the £25 million budget risks unveiled before the election. Email any news to: hfconwatch@hotmail.co.uk

CLEARLY the Tories are rather prickly about this post, having issued a denial/rebuttal 48 hours after the annual council meeting. A press release from the council (rather similar to H&F Tories' own website) has given this blog more publicity than it's had for a long time. As Cllr Greenhalgh knows, politics is about priorities. We all know what the Tory council's priorities are for the next four years - just read previous hfconwatch posts over the last four years.
