This photo of the Fightback group outside Brent Town Hall makes them look more lively than they actually were. I still haven't heard from them what they mean by "not lie down". Set an illegal budget?
Responding to the comments below, there has been a long standing problem with local government in the UK that it is financially dependent on central government. There fore it has limited room for manoeuvre. the idea that it can just stop central government policies is just pie in the sky, but I do think having a Labour Council makes us significantly different from the previous Tory administration. For example the Tories and Liberal Democrats have explicitly opposed our new recycling system, failed to push for Fairtrade status, andshowed no interest in the carbon emissions issue.
