Library service threat.
Instead of presenting a detailed plan for the service's future to the full council, where the cabinet and councillors would have to vote publicly one way or the other, the cabinet is scattering decisions to the ten district committees.
These will have no agenda items called 'cuts to library services' but they will 'lose out' in competitive priority ranking with other essential services. Objectors will then be accused of being opponents of those services which are to be properly funded. It is classic divide and rule.
Why can the cabinet not have the bottle to put their names to a library services policy instead of hiding behind the district committees? Martin Sullivan, Selly Oak
