Stoke-on-Trent will be hit by over £200 million in Tory cuts by 2020 – new data shows.
The borough has been treated unfairly by the Tory and City Independent coalition at every turn – underfunded by millions of pounds in comparison with Southern shires.
Under the Tories Stoke-on-Trent is on the wrong track, with reckless and wasteful spending putting jobs and livelihoods in our city at risk.
In 2015 the Tories and City Independents took control of Stoke-on-Trent council in a grubby stitch-up that ignored the votes of Stoke-on-Trent’s residents.
Together over the last four years they have wreaked havoc on our city, cutting local services to the bare minimum. They chose to cut funding for homelessness shelters, now there are more homeless people on our streets than ever. They chose to cut funding for youth services, now antisocial behaviour is rising uncontrollably. Choices made by this Tory-led coalition of chaos are damaging our city.
Enough is enough. Only Labour can put Stoke-on-Trent back on the right track.
