One after another, Councillors stated “these are savage cuts, these are devastating cuts, we don’t want faceless bureaucrats in here running our council, it is our role to run this town”…it certainly can be interpreted that it is far better that they cut services and sack workers rather than some faceless bureaucrat! The councillors who voted for these cuts or abstained were only interested in protecting their own positions.
