North Ayrshire Labour council: No-cuts budget?

North Ayrshire Labour-run council has claimed it has implemented a "no cuts budget" for 2017/18. Council leader Joe Cullinane was quoted in the Morning Star: "I have proposed the most radical, anti-austerity budget seen in North Ayrshire for many years and I am absolutely delighted that it has passed. It stops the cuts and invests in our future."

However, a closer look at this budget reveals it contains significant austerity cuts that will hit the working class.

For analysis by Matt Dobson, Socialist Party Scotland, go to:

Labour's "no cuts" budgets fail to offer a fighting alternative to austerity
