Our local health services are NOT overspent, they are underfunded.
We are NOT having to make “difficult choices” – we are being told what has been decided for us behind closed doors about the consequences of that underfunding.
“Public consultation” is far too little far too late. The decisions were made long ago about which services will suffer and we cannot reverse those decisions without a MASSIVE revolt against them, and even then concessions will be zero or minimal.
That is the reality.
If we want to change that most of us will have to vote out the people who brought us to this. Unpalatable for some, but the only course available to us.
