Budget mania now afflicting every working hour in the City Chambers - always the same mad rush towards the end of the budget-setting process to finalise all of the details ... there has to be a saner-way to handle the process!?
As per previous years, I do intend to post as much detail of our budget, up on the blog, in advance of actual budget-day which is Thursday 10th February ...
... and, as always, please don't hesitate to continue getting in touch if there are specific issues you want to raise with the Labour Group?
Obviously, the chances of our complete budget being 'passed' are not that high :-(
... but, as previous years have shown, pressure can be brought to bear on important policy areas that may just result in a change-of-direction by the current Administration.
