Peterborough City Council has long been the focus of my unhappy pen having stood firm against their corporate bullying, false representation and 'legal' chicanery over the years and particularly in regard to their expenditure recklessly made using slave tokens stolen (taxation is theft) from their indoctrinated followers - the people in their catchment area. Peterborough City Council has been hit by huge cuts to its funding from the Government over the past decade, and despite the budget proposals approved late on Wednesday evening, £24 million pounds in cuts/savings will need to be found before April. Of the course the spin doctors are out in full as to why this is necessary and who is to blame - with each political party blaming the other. The fact of the matter is that the blame rests with all of them! The detailed news article is here: https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/news/politics/council/peterborough-city-council-budget-approved-what-this-means-for-you-1-9203076 The savings of course do not come from the lifestyle of the rich or those in charge. In a true reversal of everything in our history, a malevolent 'Robing Hood' is stealing from the poor to give to the rich. Just look at the cuts they plan: Cutting Services for the Vulnerable Care and support commissioned by the council. Peterborough Community Assistance Scheme. KingsGate Community Church which works with volunteers to provide food banks. Care Zone, which provides furniture and white goods; Rainbow Saver Anglia - bank accounts to people with poor credit. Citizens’ Advice Bureau which helps people at risk of homelessness, people in debt, the unemployed and people suffering breakdowns. Healthy Child Programme Reablement flats - support people to regain their independence following a stay in hospital. LifeLine - a personal alarm system used by the most frail. Winter fuel payments to the most vulnerable will be stopped. Youth services. Replacement Services You just couldn't make this next bit up: The council said it will support all affected groups to find alternative funding and that the community will be ‘empowered’ to take on the running of the services. It will “look to support the recruitment of a bank of volunteers in the community” before training them to provide support to those who are socially isolated. Full Circle It is a wake up call! They actually want people in the community to pay over their slave tokens to central government who then misappropriate them and don't pass it on the local government. Local government then charge the people in the community again, for a service they don't provide once, and then want to recruit volunteers in the community to provide this service for free! If anyone can see the opening here for Kindness Credits, without paying any taxes or slave tokens to any form of government, it is truly awesome. Why is anyone paying these 'slave masters' anything? For what? Do it yourself with kindness.
