I read this leaflet with disbelief that anyone can waste money on producing something that reflects such a poor grasp on reality. Do you accept that a country deep in debt as a result of a profligate and irresponsible government losing tens of millions daily in interest alone needs to take measures to remediate the situation ? Assuming you are able to recognise this, how would you propose that the situation is addressed ? It may be that this goes beyond your powers of comprehension, but you are not in a position to generate revenues and are therefore obliged to reduce costs. Given that the whole country and every council faces the same challenge what is your recommendation if not to address the spending bill ?

Although you have chosen to waste yet more money on this meaningless bit of ill conceived nonsense it was very satisfying to see that the ridiculous amount spent on countless artificial schemes and layer after layer after layer of ineffective management milking the system at the North London Business Park is to feel the pinch. Letting them go wont make a jot of difference. Wake up and smell the coffee !  Productivity will remain the same, low as it is . At last a government is prepared to realise that university isn’t an excuse to drink cider and blackcurrant for three years before backpacking around Thailand at someone elses expense, its supposed to be an opportunity. You wont accept this because you are pig headed but time will show that youngsters that are diverted away from going to learn how to manicure toenails or attain an award in rap music or David Beckham will, instead start to look at real jobs and learn skills which will give them a grounding skill that can be used in life to support themselves

The Church Farmhouse Museum in Hendon may have funding withdrawn, are you serious ?

Enjoy your march, no doubt some broken windows to look forward to for residents. Such a useful way of spending a day. Are the police attending for free ?
