This is a reminder of just who is behind the savage cuts to front line services taking place in Rhondda Cynon Taff. Your Labour Cabinet.
Elected in May 2012 on a promise to protect front line services, they have broken just about every single promise in their manifesto, a manifesto which has conveniently disappeared from their website which is being redesigned and has been for months. Fortunately we saved a copy. RCT Cabinet 2013
With nursery education, libraries, day centres, leisure centres, meals on wheels, home care charges and youth provision all on their list of things to close, scale back or charge more for there are a lot of unhappy residents in RCT at the moment, and rightly so.
Whilst these much valued services are being cut this administration continue to shell out taxpayers money on building their own little empire. There has been no mention so far of cutting the PR department which is headed up by the son of Cabinet Member Eudine Hanagan, no mention of cutting back on the Outlook magazine or the substantial amounts spent in advertising in local press and with GTFM radio.
No matter how much they try to shift the blame they are the ones in charge in RCT, they have failed to keep spending in check and they are now using the financial situation to try and make political capital. Remember them.
