'Northern cities are bearing the brunt of public sector cuts' warning

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Councillor David Green Councillor David Green

Northern cities are bearing the brunt of public sector cuts, according to a new campaign being backed by the leader of Bradford Council.

Councillor David Green, who heads the Labour-run Council, is backing calls for Chancellor George Osborne to halt the growing divide in funding between authorities in the North and South, saying Bradford has lost a far higher proportion of funding than comparable councils in wealthier parts of the country.

Lobbying group SIGOMA, which represents large urban authorities, is leading the campaign as the Chancellor prepares to make his Autumn Statement in which he will set out future spending plans.

Coun Green said the future viability of local services depended on the Government taking notice.

Total incompetence in the running of the City is the biggest problem Bradford faces and it's coming home to roost.

Just look at the rubbish that the T&A have believed with regards to Mr Flowers and closed it to comments.

The only reason it wasn't made public was as not to embarrass the Labour Party and cause them to lose the seat, not to stop Mr Flowers from being embarrassed.

Why would anyone in government take any notice of a bloke in earrings who looks like a ex fairground worker. Hardly inspires confidence in the business
community, probably explains why Westfield walk all over him. They probably call him " That limey joker over in the UK" . Got that one right then!
