Rob McArdle supports Lobby of Coventry City Council
Socialist Party member Rob McArdle outlines why he is supporting a lobby of the Cabinet organised by Coventry TUC
“The proposal for a further £43m cuts will have a devastating effect on those who most need help. We’ve already seen the terrible effects cuts have – with growing queues at food banks and increased homelessness. Sadly all 54 councillors are likely to approve plans, resulting in job losses and reduced council services. They DO have a choice, they could fight for the money being stolen by the government. Unless we get organised and build a campaign to fight the cuts, they will keep cutting until nothing is left. I will be supporting the lobby because the people of Coventry should not be made victims of banker’s greed. In May 2014 we will have the chance to vote for Socialist candidates that will oppose the cuts. At the lobby we can make our voice heard in support of council services and urge this council to fight for us.
