Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat
Manchester Cuts, Birmingham Next?
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
£40 million for Adult Care £45 million Children’s Services £12.6 Million Housing for Vulnerable People
2000 Jobs (17%) of Council jobs to go.
I somehow think that the 3,700 job losses in Birmingham and increases to council house rents and car parking along with restricted funds for care and the arts are not going to be all that we have to face ahead.
But Phil, have you seen the latest idea from that pratt Wei , who was appointed by Cameron to organise the "Big Society" and then cut his hours because the post was unpaid and he couldn't afford to live in the style to which he was accustomed. He now says ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/...part-time-staff ) that councils should employ people part time ( at of course greatly reduced salaries ), so that they can then have more free time to donate to his plans.
