Plans to close Whitehaven’s Civic Hall, Beacon museum and tourist information centre in a desperate move to cut costs have been described as “an act of vandalism” by Copeland MP Jamie Reed.
Have your say
Every one is blaming everyone else, look we all know why this is happening it is this awful governments policies, it seems its always the labour party to blame,they say, well at long last you are correct,
We have just spent 12 Billion pounds on rich peoples fun and Games in London, now that is the labour party's fault, now we as usual we pick up the tab,they are all to blame, i say we want Independence For Cumberland we should Join Scotland and get our own Parliament.
I am sorry to see that a number of venues are closing due to lack of funds in Copeland, and I see that many people are angry and raising a petition.Our democracy and sovereign rights are being handed to the EU/Brussels every day yet very few of us pass any comment?If this coalition government, like the previous government would stop sending Â£55 million a day!!Â£1.5billion per month!!to this discredited EU club we would not need to close any amenity anywhere.Please ask your MP and councillors why we are continuing to support this empty vessel.
Cuts have apparently been made since 2010, so how does Elaine Woodburn justify her Â£6k pay rise in 2011 when all other public sector workers had their pay frozen??
