This Labour Party Conference proved to be very exciting and energising. Nicki Waugh and I joined the 1500 delegates that filled the hall.
It was a privilege to be part of this conference; to listen to the shadow cabinet ministers – so impassioned about their areas of responsibility and so determined to bring about change.
It was energising and so full of optimism…
This budget has been forced upon the Council by the tactical decisions of central government. […] But this government is very astute. When the quality of life of residents is badly affected, Westminster will be able to say- it is because of decisions made by your local councillors. […] Perhaps local councils should make more of a fuss.
I fully understand the financial predicament of Local Councils following the central government’s complete withdrawal of the Revenue Support grant by 2020; for Bracknell Forest- a hole of £23.5m. I also appreciate all the work being done in the Transformation Teams to identify savings by considering different ways of delivering service.

This radical and sudden rethink of policy at the most senior level of the Conservative Party calls in to question policy as enacted by Conservatives at a local level.
The biggest political movement in Britain with over 500,000 members.
The second biggest vote winners in Bracknell and the official opposition party here.
RT @RichardBurgon Yet more evidence of the costly failure of the Conservatives' obsession with outsourcing, privatisation and the use of agency work. The courts service spent £50m last year on agency and contract staff - a more than tenfold rise since 2010! theguardian.com/law/…
