Campaigning petition from Bromley Cuts Concern

'Stop the cuts in Bromley' is new campaign from Bromley Cuts Concern using printed petition for real time local contact and online version (sign here) with aim of placing more pressure on government to respond to alternatives.

Wording on hard copy and ipetition is identical.  

To Cllr Stephen Carr, Leader London Borough of Bromley

We the undersigned are deeply concerned about Bromley Council's decision to make £33
million of cuts, that will affect many vulnerable people in the borough including services
for the elderly and disabled, youth and children's centres, libraries, park rangers, school-
crossing patrols, help with school uniforms, and loss of public toilets.

We therefore call on the councillors to reconfigure their budget decisions and use some of
their £58.5 million reserves as recommended by the Local Government Minister, Andrew
Stunell MP on 2 March 2011.

We also urge Tory and Lib Dem councillors to look at an alternative to the public expenditure
cuts by putting pressure on the government to:
 . curb bankers' bonuses
 . tax the banks at a much higher rate

. crack down on tax evasion/avoidance by the banks and other big businesses
