Stoke-on-Trent is waking to to a very different political landscape this morning, the morning after the night Labour swept through the new slimmed down chamber taking 34 of the 44 available seats.
As well as the increased majority in the Labour camp we are in a city that is now only represented by 4 of the 10 different parties that stood.
The chamber as elected last night looks like:
There can be no doubt that the present government inherited an absolute mess made by Labour.
We all know that large reductions are needed.
What cannot be accepted is the way in which the Conservative & Lib Dem Government has supported their own areas and attacked Stoke-on-Trent by massive and disproportionate reductions.
An 8% reduction for Stoke and yet only 1.8% for Staffordshire cannot, by anyone’s view, be fair and that surely is what we should expect from a Government that is supposed to govern for the whole country and not just their friends in Tory or Lib Dem areas.
EXPERIENCE. INTEGRITY. DEDICATION.
