Mary does a Nero.......

At last night's Unison-sponsored public meeting (see report) branch secretary Alex Knutsen gave a horrifying glimpse of the massive hole which the ConDem coalition's cuts are about to open up in the finances of the City Council. 

There is the immediate threat of the current-year cuts, plus what is in store.  There are also concerns for 21 EU-funded jobs threatened by the crisis of the Euro.  At stake is 25% - yes 25% - of the council's current spending.  The opposition is calling for an emergency budget meeting to discuss this looming crisis.

What's the Leader of the Council doing?
