Hundreds of protesters gathered in Carlisle city centre for a rally against cuts to public services on Saturday.
Have your say
Dave i feel you got it a bit wrong as I certainly have not criticised the turn out with the Protest because I only wished there had been thousands out there not just a few hundred.What people cannot see is that by voting we still do not have a true democracy because they are each the same mix as it swings only between 3 Parties the last of which did not get in by majority vote. Cons have always been just that and always have lambasted the poorer end of Society. Actually no, it swings between two Parties each of same ilk New Labour has been back door Cons, and then we have Cons., whilst Libs are weak but destructive also as Farming community have said at the outset in a supplement of Cumberland News some time back. If we were truly Free men of our Land as are or were the Gypsies free to roam the lands we would not be in this controlled mess, then it is democracy. There would be no torturing or imprisonments. Egypt peoples know what the score is.
Well Pete I didnt say I didnt read the local paper I merely stated that On whatever night or nights I did read the paper I didnt see the article about the march.
You appear not to like this or the last government so I am unsure where your convictions lie.
Hopefully those who voted for the conservatives and are now suffering the effects of their policies will not vote for them next time around!
All City council's have and will be cutting jobs and our services. WE the citizens will pay the price, parking charges will rise, publically owned facillities will be sold. Bins maybe collected 3 weekly, bus concessions will eventually cease. I have heard that The Chief Executives of 126 Local Authorities are paid more than the Prime Minister ! In this mad Country it seems running a City badly acually pays more than running the entire Country badly. So when my Bus pass is stopped, my bin is overflowing. Who would I rather keep employed. Its like choosing between a neo natel consultant or Nick Clegg.
