Let’s hear your budget ideas

12 January, 2018

• LAST week Labour published its proposals for the 2018-19 budget.

No one party has the monopoly on good ideas and over the coming weeks Islington Green Party will be publishing proposals and amendments for making Labour’s budget better.

If any readers have ideas or suggestions we would love to hear from them.

It is my hope that we will not see a repeat of what happened last year with the diesel surcharge. Labour voted down our amendment with great theatre in the council chamber. Later, realising its merits, they included it.

That sort of behaviour simply prevents opposition parties from working for the benefit of residents and is, to say the least, unbecoming in a majority party.
