The allowances should be cut

COUNTY councillors should be ashamed of themselves.

We constantly read about cuts this council must make, with the working class bearing the brunt.

But we don’t hear or read that county councillors are willing to give up their allowances to aid these cuts or to help the workers who will lose their jobs.

The only thing the workers will have is the unemployment office workers shuffling papers of jobs that don’t exist.
