Remember who is to blame for the ‘limited resources’ in the borough

12 February, 2021

• WRITING on behalf of the Islington Conservative Federation Benjamin Jackson criticises the council’s spending on LTN, low traffic neighbourhood, schemes rather than housing upkeep, referring to the “limited resources of the borough”, (Labour’s budget for the borough is out of touch, February 5).

He might have paused to reflect on the reasons for such limited resources; his government’s 50 to 60 per cent cuts to council budgets since 2010. Had these cuts not been made the council would not be in the position of having to make such hard choices.
