Brent Budget Voted Through
As Nick Clegg's position unravels, Brent Council met to vote through its budget last night. I never find these debates either informative or enjoyable. The opposition don't present any alternative, and on this occasion didn't even pretend to. Although the way central government cuts play out, this year's budget is relatively easy. Next year a £20 million cut is being imposed, which coming on top of the previous cuts, is bound to severely affect the Council's operations.
