We need a real Left

And Cameron says democracy is good for the country of Egypt while he screws every single person – including children – so he and his rich friends can get even richer but hides behind “the good of the country”.

There is just one extraordinary fact everyone needs to know. The cuts have fallen hardest on the most deprived councils, while the richest areas have suffered least.

What we are seeing is a politically motivated and ideological assault on public services, far bigger and much more vicious than levied by any Tory Government since the war …

Polly Toynbee – Comment is free.

What a shame there is no real govt opposition. Little Ed doesn’t count. He may be a lot of things and I’m sure he’s clever in many way but a leader to inspire his own paid-up members? No, he’s not that.

Tories stamp on kids

Did you vote Conservative?
Did you vote Lib Dem?
If you did, you did this:

A nationwide survey of Sure Start children’s centre managers across England, carried out by 4Children and Daycare Trust, found that 250 children’s centres are at risk of closure, a further 2,000 are cutting back the services they offer to families and 1,000 are issuing “at risk of redundancy notices” to staff. As many as 3,100 centres (86%) will have a decreased budget. Liberal Conspiracy

What was Sure Start?

Labour’s great legacy was 3,500 Sure Start children’s centres, most densely provided in the poorest places. The politically neutral Institute for Government this week listed Sure Start and the minimum wage among the most successful government policies of the last 30 years. Here at last, with universal nursery education for 3- and 4-year-olds and intensive family help, is the missing cradle in the cradle-to-grave welfare promise. Polly Toynbee 2010

In any clash over priorities, the under-fives are always sacrificed first. Polly Toynbee 2005

As many as 60,000 families could lose their local centre

So if you voted for this coalition I hope you are proud of your decision.
