092 SW Bristol PAAA Part One main stage

083 SW Bristol PAAA Beep for NHSJO: well, I would agree that you need the extra-electoral structures and pressure but I am not entirely sure about revolution. I’m considering it as part of this thing .. I am trying to work out what I think needs to be done … but just turning the attention towards today in particular, what’s going on here, and what’s the aim of this day do you think?

AL: The Tory government have implemented massive cuts across the country on councils, and the councils have implemented those cuts, and in Bristol we’ve seen an absolutely huge £9bn worth of cuts, and it’s decimating things like social services … half the libraries are up for closure …

JO: so what’s the …. is it central government policy that’s now affecting the local authority budgets …

AL: that’s right … it’s affecting local authority budgets …

JO: but I’ve noticed quite a lot of signs already pointing the finger at the Labour Mayor. Is that because it’s being implemented at the local level?
