No Cuts Budget

Set a No Cuts budget which would protect vital public services and jobs.

If any advice or support is needed on the technical details then please refer to any of the trade unions representing staff who currently work to provide council services and their previous submissions on a No Cuts budget.

 

Why the contribution is important

A No Cuts budget is the only response left to councillors and councils in the face of Tory austerity.

The scale of the cuts is too large to be simply 'managed' - they must be directly and clearly opposed.

    I partially agree. I would not want to borrow all of the funds to allow a no cuts budget but at the same time i don't think simply cutting is viable at all. A steady downward spiral will insu if the proposed cuts go ahead and the city might never recover.

    Residents are already taking to the streets while councillors try and play politics with Holyrood. Time to get over the general election and the referendum and start working together to stem the tide of cuts from westminster. Dont make the same mistake as Mr Osborne and keep cutting. The patient is still alive but in critical.

    Intrest rates are low so some borrowing should help to ease some of the burden and give the patient an outside chance of recovery. Otherwise it'll be too late and even a miricle might not work.
