Wednesday Stop the Press - Lambeth Town Hall Occupied

Anti-cuts demonstrators have occupied Lambeth Town Hall during a private cuts meeting.   Labour Councillor Alex Bigham: 'What has happened is that the government has cut our funding by a third,' he added, saying that the council had been "forced" to take money from the public balance sheet or reduce back office spending.

  'We are extremely angry that we have do that. I understand the protesters are angry but in many ways their actions are misdirected. They should be taking their protests elsewhere, such as to the Treasury.'
  Extremely angry and misdirected, Alex?  Really?  It's held in private so that the public don't get to hear about this soapy over-paid grasper and his mate's outrageous expenses and wages.  Geddit?!
