    To describe the £320 million Birmingham City Council must save from its budget over the next four years as a mere cuts package is a little like suggesting a heart and lung transplant is nothing but minor surgery.
    What is being proposed is no less than the dismantling of local government as it has existed for decades – steamrollering through the most radical changes to public services since the welfare state came into existence 64 years ago.

    1. Interesting article. And I have to agree with how cutbacks will see radical change to public services - I think we're going to witness major change to the structure of our local government.
