Over the weekend Ipswich Labour were scaring the electorate with fire service cuts that would put their lives in danger. They have a leaflet with a petition on it and it just so happens their favourite blogger has obtained a copy.
On the leaflet Ipswich Labour say “We need your help.” We know Labour need help under Corbyn’s leadership but I believe Corbyn should stay for a while longer, because there is so much more damage, to be done.
Now obviously Ipswich Labour aren’t bothered about fire service cuts taking place or the threat to life they claim the cuts will produce, because if they did they would direct residents to the consultation taking place here that is taking place until February 2016. Instead they are using the fire service cuts as part of next years borough election campaign where they plan to disingenuously confuse the electorate by fighting the borough election on county issues. Other intelligence sources confirm this.
It is a great disservice to the people for Ipswich Labour to use this for political gain but then they are only in it for themselves anyway. I personally believe that the proposed cuts to the fire service are detriment to the service and savings would be better achieved by cutting fat cat salaries. But Ipswich Labour aren’t interested in alternative solutions, just political points.
As I am concerned about the proposed cuts, I would encourage readers of this blog to take part in the consultation by filling in the online questionnaire which can be found here.
