'No-cuts budgets' article on Independent's website

Forget 'sweetheart deals' - this is how Labour councils can beat the Tories at their own game - is the headline of an article by Matthew Turner on the Independent's website (click on the blue link to go to the article).

Matthew agrees with the Socialist Party and the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) that Labour councillors could defy Tory spending cuts, arguing: "it's time that Labour councils resisted a reckless and failing economic policy by refusing to implement cuts devolved to them from central government".
