Lincoln: Save Drill Hall
Jacob Corr, Lincolnshire Socialist Party
The Socialist Party condemns the decision by Lincoln council to cut support for Drill Hall. The Labour-controlled council voted to fully end funding, after years of cuts, placing the service in jeopardy and jobs under threat.
Drill Hall is a vital public service, which provides access to a range of activities for the community. It's a jewel in the crown of local culture.
Labour councillors have decided to act as agents of austerity and make ordinary people pay for Tory cuts. Many residents feel betrayed. What's the point in voting Labour, if they carry out Tory policies?
There is an alternative to endless austerity. Set an emergency no-cuts budget, based on the needs of local people for decent jobs, homes and services.
And build a campaign for the missing money, united together with the community and the trade unions. Link up with other areas facing similar cuts.
Our public services have already faced ten years of austerity. Enough is enough. It's time for Labour councillors to fight back, or be prepared to face a challenge at the ballot box.
