Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Is this writer making a good point – or just hitting and hoping?

Tories are never going to play by the rules when it comes to the devolution of austerity. No matter what platitudes they offer about “all councils bearing the same brunt”, they will always look after their own.

If Labour councils co-ordinated across the country, they could mobilise a nationwide campaign of both political pressure and public support that would force the Tories to not only cease and desist with these sweetheart deals but also the failed economic policy of austerity that has decimated working class communities for over a decade.

When the public sees Labour councils fighting for them they will fight for Labour councils in return.

By supporting legal no-cuts budgets, it proves that Labour are a serious opposition that will fight tooth and nail for the communities they represent. Jeremy Corbyn often says that “austerity is a political choice” and it’s about time Labour councils stood up to the Government and opposed their methods of selective austerity.
