Ten staff will lose their jobs after the Government confirmed it is closing the Carlisle DVLA office despite wide-spread opposition.
Have your say
Michelle doesnt like it, but I know many of the staff who are now over the moon that they are going to get their redundancy. This has been coming for some time. It was coming long before the elections in may 2010.
As more and more services move to the internet, the residuals can move to the post office.
How can Swansea deal with everything. What about when you need to change the Taxation class? For this you have to go into an office. How can someone up north travel to Swansea. It is already a great distance for people in the Borders to go to Carlise or Edinurgh but it is impossible to travel any further. David Cameron thinks everyone has access to the internet, or likes using automated 'phones. Wake up David & become part of the real world.Carlise Office is so easy to find & park that we use this office instead of the edinburgh Office, which is a nightmare to get to.More & more people are loosing their jobs & I would have thought this Government would be trying to save as many as they can & not just keep adding to unemployment.Especially in areas where jobs are very limited. I notice that if any cuts are to be made by this Government & the last, it is never down South or around London but in the North, causing more hardship for the people who are already struggling to make ends meet.Politicians have no idea what its like for ordinary people, either that or they just donot care.
They do not care in the least what the public wants, even thoug we all pay their huge wages.Shame on David Cameron & his pals.He is likely to loose a lot of his voters if he carries on causeing hardship to so many. Enoy your term in office as I doubt you will get another.You have no idea of what its like to struggle to survive, but who know what the future holds for any of us.
