No need for job losses, says Cumbria council leader

Cumbria County Council leader Eddie Martin believes there will be no need for compulsory redundancies within the authority in the coming months.

Have your say

"Anon" who apparently worked for the Council, doesnt even know who has controlled the council for the past 4 years! It is still a Tory controlled council, they have 6 out of 10 seats on the Cabinet

Correction - it's a Tory/Labour coalition but nevertheless, Cabinet is dominated by the Tories and there is a Tory leader so hardly a Labour council.

Whilst I'm sorry to hear about your contract, you can't really blame the Labour party - Cumbria County Council isn't a Labour Council, it's a Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition.

Cumbria County Council seem to have made it their aim to increase the unemployment figures in west cumbria. It has awarded our contract to another county, thus ensuring nine of us are out of work. That is a labour council for you. I wouldn't expect anything less.

New musical artists or older ones... who do you prefer?

Older. They've come through the ranks, learned their craft - timeless

Young blood - always listening out for new music

New artists are usually X Factor or BGT groomed. They last five minutes. Not for me
