Sure Start centres - Hammersmith & Fulham council's "biggest lie yet"

Andy Slaughter, MP for Hammersmith, has said Tory H&F council's plans for funding Sure Start centres - which readers of this blog will know mean a whopping cut of £3.2m and redundancies costing £600,000 - represent "the biggest lie yet from the parties that promised to cut tuition fees and not increase VAT."

He added, "It is targeted at the most vulnerable...It's not the same old Tories - these are worse."

So this is what the Tories meant by protecting Sure Start? Put a LibDem Minister in charge, say lots of nice things, then leave it all to the big society to sort out. It's not a good time for children to grow up in Hammersmith & Fulham. Unless of course they know Toby Young.
