JUST how often are we expected to put up with the likes of Lib-Dem councillors Ayres, Reid and Orrell and other members of the rump group on City of York Council pretending that the cuts in which the Lib-Dems are complicit in Government are nothing to do with them?

And given his Tory-led Coalition Government’s savage cuts to our council funding, when is Coun Gillies going to accept responsibility for the inevitable adverse impact on frontline services, instead of pretending it’s nothing to do with him?

Some honesty from the opposition groups would be refreshing.
