The trade unions and their members representing the Youth of today from Connexions and the LA Youth Service and the education of your children, Housing workers for affordable and social housing, Health workers who want a stable health service and concerned members of the public. All joined forces on Monday 26th July to let the Council and their visiting Minister for Local Government know in no uncertain terms, frontline services to the elderly, the vulnerable and children should not be touched to pay for the deficit this country faces at the hands of the bankers and the Financial sector whose greed allowed them to play russian roulette with our money. We were joined by local Labour Councillors who have come out in Condemming the cuts imposed by the ConDem Coalition Government. Bristol City is lead by a Liberal Democrat administration, we look forward to having them back us, the workforce of frontline services and the public who receive them, and we are waiting to hear them ConDem the cuts as well.
We are in this together the working person who is being hit the hardest for the mistakes and greed of the rich. I am proud to be a voice of the millions who will be vulnerable and hurt by the ConDem proposals.
Bristol City Council plans to raise charges for care services hitting the most vulnerable and take away the subsidy for Meals on Wheels leaving thousands in worse state of poverty and potential ill-health because they cannot afford a nutritional well balanced meal in their old age.
Bristol's population and businesses rely heavily on the 66,600 public sector jobs across the city and we will all pay a price to high for thousands of out of work crucial frontline service staff who will just add to the misery of this city and potentially create a double dip recession for Bristol. Something no one will benefit from and cause even more hardship across the board.
The latest ill-thought through scheme of the ConDem coalition is to create a National Citizen Service for 16+ and a boot camp in the summer. What parents want for their children is a good job when they leave school, not a life of cheap labour doing 'community work' to make the privileged few a lot richer on the backs of those who deserve a better start in life our children.
