EDITOR – In relation to your story on deep cuts in last week’s Standard, my opinion is that we all know these cuts are larger than any of us could perhaps have anticipated and times ahead are likely to be tough for us all.
But what continuously seems to be forgotten by the Labour Party locally and nationally is after 13 years under their rule, we are now in this time of cuts, to rectify their mistakes and overspending.
It has forced the coalition government to take these tough measures to ensure the mistakes of the past are rectified, and we have a brighter future.
All too often at the moment, the Labour party seems to be all criticism and spin, with no real plan as to what they would do differently to improve the situation.
I would like to see in the future, Labour councillors and politicians actually putting their plans forward as opposed to continuously slating the coalition.
