Mirror, mirror...the biggest of them all?

H&F Tory council leader Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh was embraced recently by Tory local government minister Eric Pickles as they dwarfed H&F council's debt.

They were celebrating a further £55 million cuts in local services over the next three years together with a deal to merge H&F's local education authority with Westminster council's. It's not clear who voted for that move or what benefit it will bring the children and students of this borough.

PS This is what The Guardian has to say about the education merger with Westminster: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jul/17/public-services-local-councils So much for the new localism.
