Really depressing case study of the effect the cuts are having on Middlesborough.
Ignore the pro-Labour spin of the article — given that Labour wanted to make a similar amount of cuts, just slower — and it’s an informative read.
The list of the 111 cuts at the end was too much though.
Cease school clothing grants (£13,000)? Cease providing employment support advice to those receiving social care (£50,000)? Cease providing transport to school due to a temporary disability on medical grounds (£5,000)?
Too fucking depressing.
