The demise of Community learning and Development in Scotland’s capital city, which will be the consequence of the SNP/Libdem administration's £833,000 cut and removal of 16 posts was commented on in tonight's evening news by Dr Jim Crowther, programme coordinator in Community Education at the University of Edinburgh.
His view of these cuts is that “During (the) Thatcherite years, marked by extreme hostility to public services, the worst of cuts paled in comparison to what is now being perpetrated”.
I couldn’t have put it better myself though its amazing that its only taken this lot 9 months to get a reputation Margaret Thatcher took years to nurture. They must be so proud of themselves!
