The Breaking Point campaign received a major boost today when it received the backing of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn MP.
Labour’s leader met with a delegation of Labour council leaders to discuss how communities had been damaged by the Conservative policy of austerity in local government, and offered his support to the Breaking Point campaign.
LGA Labour group leader Cllr Nick Forbes said “I’m delighted that Jeremy is giving our campaign against austerity in local government his full backing. Jeremy has been consistent in speaking out against the damage caused by cuts to key services. Labour would do things differently, and would invest in public services that we all rely on.”
