Derbyshire Labour cuts school crossings
The Labour majority on Derbyshire County Council failed miserably in its first post-Corbyn test last week. Despite the council leader publicly declaring she had supported Corbyn, the council voted to back its previous decision to decimate its school crossing patrol service, as part of its huge onslaught of £157 million of cuts.
Anti-cuts campaigners, including Lisa Blakemore, recently elected as Chesterfield TUSC secretary, had collected thousands of signatures from irate parents. Lisa was allowed to address the council meeting but to no avail. Derbyshire Labour Party showed - by voting through cuts once more - that there's a long way to go before it can even pretend to represent workers.
Campaigners, including TUSC, will now redouble their efforts to build a mass campaign against Labour's attacks on old people's homes, community transport and other services.
