Cuts mean Burnley council workers face axe

THIRTY-six posts are set to be axed by Burnley Council as town hall bosses are forced to make savings of £2million.

Council officials have not revealed publicly where the axe will fall — but 21 occupied posts are known to be affected and the move will recoup £555,000.

Another 16 positions, currently vacant, will be deleted from the borough’s rosters, clawing back a further £403,000.

Elsewhere there are plans to increase car parking charges everywhere except Towneley Hall, with a six per cent rise in cremation fees and four per cent hike in burial charges.

Other increases in fees and charges have been limited to three per cent and the free swimming scheme for under 16s and over 60s will continue. The hire charge for council-owned football pitches will drop from £53.80 to £50.

Coun Mark Townsend, resources executive member, said: “The funding we get from government is reducing, and we are having to propose a number of redundancies because of this. We have explored all possibilities in an effort to minimise redundancies and are planning to make savings in other areas as well but unfortunately it has not been possible to balance the budget by this means alone.”

The council conducted a ‘Have Your Say’ exercise to receive ideas about prior-ities and possible savings areas in November.

Coun Townsend said the original number of redundancies forecast was around 30 but discussions had taken place with staff and unions.

The authority has received £200,000 in a New Homes Bonus, and instigated a number of other savings, but financiers are expecting to be hit hard when their annual settlement is announced.

And not one single Banker has been called to account, but we are all in it together. I hope Gordon Birtwistle can justify the savaging of local authority budgets, It is no wonder they wouldn't go to the poles.

When the axe is swung nobody is safe from getting hurt in some way due to Osbournes extended austerity measures and stance on protecting the triple A rating..

Unless the masses start demanding change from the failed Osbourne plan then there will be many many more cuts and redundances coming to all walks of life excluding the Banksters, Polimagicians, Media monguls and the energy czars they're exempt from any degree of hardship or responsibility for their crimes or actions..."wake up before its to late"..

Inevitable consequence of the disaster that was "New Labour". Lest we forget it "New Labour" who spent money that they did not have and created thousands of non productive public sector jobs. If we are to point the finger of blame at any of the political parties it must be "New Labour". In addition to their financial incmpetance "New Labour" also allowed the U.K. to be flooded with all manner of foreign criminals. These included, inter alia, War Criminals, Murderers, Rapists, Paedophiles, Class A drug dealers, Fraudstaers, People Traffickers and let us not forget Terrorists. Yes there is much blame to lay at the door of "New Labour". The cuts have to be made now and let us face facts the current government are actually doing the right thing. We can take comfort in that. Another thing that we can take comfort in is that thanks to the unions "Ed Milliband" is now the "New Labour" leader. This means that they will lie and rot in the political wilderness for many years to come. Never let "New Labour" back into power. Never, Never, Never!

While there is much evidence to support your comment, we can also prove that much of the funding spent in the public sector was needed te repair the carnage done by the Tories. Thanks to the cuts, our charities are inundated with cries for help and our vulnerable are in crisis. It's not the total amount that was too high, it was where the money and the opportunity was wasted

The coalition has been seen for what it is. New Labour did not cause the housing market to collapse in America, or the Icelandic Bank collapse.In fact the last government did try to stave of the recession. Sadly too many people listened to the poison in the press and missed the real issues. This country is not as broke as they would have us believe. It has shown where the real problems lie when the Tories allowed the big companies and their friends in the city to pay little or no tax on the massive profits made in this country. This time people have seen through the Tory lies, The NHS is safe in our hands they said, lies, public services would be safe, more lies. in fact the trail of lies and u turns this bunch of clowns have done is embarrassing our nation. Just for the record Tony Blair was never a labour man and neither was the last government. If you want to refer to foreign criminals being allowd into this country then read your history, you might be surprised. Ignorance by the masses is the food of governments.

When will people get wise to the fact that we are pouring money into a deep deep deep holed bucket called the EU.
Its now £52 million a day we give out. ooops sorry people just been told its now £56 million a day , is that corect ??
Why are the British people so stupid in just sitting back and let our polititions leave the money vaulys open to the scoungers of Europe.
Did you hear the one about Camoron having a slap up meal in Brussels last week while trying to negotiate a freeze, not a reduction but a frezze mind you. and he found out that the wine they weere all drinking was £100 bottles of the best the world can offer, it appears that the brussels wine cellar has 45,000 botle of the most highly priced wines in the world in stock estemated to cost over £ 4 million.
Lets get real here why should the people of Britian suffer with pay cuts / higher taxation/ unemployment / social cuts when we pay out all that money to the EU get real people stop supporting the Political parties that will do nothing for you. vote for the one who does care for this countries future thats is of course the UKIP party vote them in future, unless your quite happy in the way you life now, taxed to high heaven/ unemployed and living on the bread line.

Ok UKIP good point, however what have you to say about the £275million given to India in aid when India said they didn't want or need it, in order to avoid a diplomatic fallout they eventually agreed to accept it. Or what about all the millions given in aid to Africa that ends up in the pockets of the likes of Mugabe or Zuma, so far I haven't heard any poiticians bleating about this waste of tax payers money. The UK is in a bad way and charity should begin at home, never mind the brown envelopes, free holidays etc. that the politicians love so much, stop all foreign aid and spend 100% of taxpayers money on and in the UK.

Finally one or two of you on this site or waking up...

Further cuts to the dilapidated police force and NHS the Office for Budget Responsibility is expected to judge that the Chancellor has broken his golden rules just 30 months after establishing them, and that he will need to extend austerity into 2018. At the same time, he must find some way of stimulating growth. Without spending any money. This is what's in prospect for the Autumn Statement .

Like last year, the OBR is expected to take an axe to its forecasts tomorrow. Growth this year won’t be the 0.8pc predicted in March, but zero or worse. Growth in 2013 will be downgraded from 2pc to around 1.2pc. In fact, the recovery has been so weak that the size of the economy will still be about 2pc smaller in 2016 than previously predicted. Expect the Chancellor to blame it on the eurozone and other events outside his control.

The national debt rose above £1 trillion for the first time this year, and remains on an upward trajectory. In fact, the UK has not paid back a penny of debt in over a decade and there is no prospect of us doing so in the current forecast period to 2018. Instead, the Chancellor and most respected economic bodies want to see debt falling as a proportion of GDP as soon as possible. That way, at least the country would be growing faster than its debts.

The Chancellor set himself two goals on taking office, to eliminate the structural budget deficit over a rolling five-year horizon, and to have debt falling as a percentage of GDP by 2015/2016. He will almost certainly miss the debt target. And, to hit the deficit target, he’ll need to extend austerity for another year by as much as £23bn, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies. To put that in context, the current seven-year consolidation programme totals £147bn. He may even announce that he wants a whole new set of rules, having broken his original ones just 30 months after creating them.

The Chancellor has revealed plans to shave a bit more off departmental budgets and shift the money across to capital spending programmes, such as schools. The £5bn may come in part from a further freeze on public sector pay as well as further job cuts. Few dispute that money spent on schools is better for growth than money in civil servant wallets.

Sheeple are waking up in their masses and after tomorrows statement am sure that many more will be waking up to the deception in plain view.

And don't forget the upcoming spike in food prices you need to stock up this will cause massive carnage and rioting worldwide when there is not enough food left to go round....these dark days are coming and tomorrows statement is the start of something very dreadfull..the wheels started rolling for a 90% reduction in the world population many years ago and they will carry this out.

I have no words to describe the shame I feel for the world we have all created and the evilness that is lingering in our atmosphere. An evilness that is fragmentating humanity to the point of turning man against man. Untill there is nobody left to fight apart from the ones who brought humanity to extinction.

Tomorrow take the statement then gather your thoughts and contemplate how to bring humanity back to being a mass then we can try to survive this onslaught of our existence.

Defragmentation is the key to our survival goodluck stock up don't be scared be perpared..I love you all............

Instead, the Chancellor and most respected economic bodies want to see debt falling as a proportion of GDP as soon as possible. That way, at least the country would be growing faster than its debts. The Chancellor set himself two goals on taking office, to eliminate the structural budget deficit over a rolling five-year horizon, and to have debt falling as a percentage of GDP by 2015/2016. He will almost certainly miss the debt target. And, to hit the deficit target, he’ll need to extend austerity for another year by as much as £23bn, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies. To put that in context, the current seven-year consolidation programme totals £147bn. He may even announce that he wants a whole new set of rules, having broken his original ones just 30 months after creating them. The Chancellor has revealed plans to shave a bit more off departmental budgets and shift the money across to capital spending programmes, such as schools. The £5bn may come in part from a further freeze on public sector pay as well as further job cuts. Few dispute that money spent on schools is better for growth than money in civil servant wallets. Sheeple are waking up in their masses and after tomorrows statement am sure that many more will be waking up to the deception in plain view. And don't forget the upcoming spike in food prices you need to stock up this will cause massive carnage and rioting worldwide when there is not enough food left to go round....these dark days are coming and tomorrows statement is the start of something very dreadfull..the wheels started rolling for a 90% reduction in the world population many years ago and they will carry this out. I have no words to describe the shame I feel for the world we have all created and the evilness that is lingering in our atmosphere. An evilness that is fragmentating humanity to the point of turning man against man. Untill there is nobody left to fight apart from the ones who brought humanity to extinction. Tomorrow take the statement then gather your thoughts and contemplate how to bring humanity back to being a mass then we can try to survive this onslaught of our existence. Defragmentation is the key to our survival goodluck stock up don't be scared be perpared..I love you all............ Info-warrior

Thats part of the deception creating wealth for small parts of the society and strip the majority of everything they have it creates a devide in humanity and resentment and bitternes between fellow humans. Thats as simple as it is and these devides are created in all various forms. War, Racism, Religions, Cultures even football are all different tools that do the same job. This has gone on for thousands of years and when you can see through the deceit that is close to destroying us completely you will be astonished at why there is so many who can't except that we have been lied to about almost everything you have ever been lead to believe in. Its hard to except or even understand fully without doing some form of research for yourself.

thecrowhouse.com is a very good starting place for your journey of enlightenment and understanding of devide between humanity

I have tried to find out what the UK's contribution is to the Hadron project but as yet I have had no luck, but I would guess it is millions.

With all these cuts the councils are being forced to make surely it's time to think about Unitary Authorities and sharing services. This would make bigger savings all round. There wouldn't be any need for so many highly paid executives and the money could be pumped into front line services instead.

When will people get wise to the fact that we are pouring money into a deep deep deep holed bucket called the EU.
Its now £52 million a day we give out. ooops sorry people just been told its now £56 million a day , is that corect ??
Why are the British people so stupid in just sitting back and let our polititions leave the money vaulys open to the scoungers of Europe.
Did you hear the one about Camoron having a slap up meal in Brussels last week while trying to negotiate a freeze, not a reduction but a frezze mind you. and he found out that the wine they weere all drinking was £100 bottles of the best the world can offer, it appears that the brussels wine cellar has 45,000 botle of the most highly priced wines in the world in stock estemated to cost over £ 4 million.
Lets get real here why should the people of Britian suffer with pay cuts / higher taxation/ unemployment / social cuts when we pay out all that money to the EU get real people stop supporting the Political parties that will do nothing for you. vote for the one who does care for this countries future thats is of course the UKIP party vote them in future, unless your quite happy in the way you life now, taxed to high heaven/ unemployed and living on the bread line.
But with large areas of the UK being so poor, how much did the EU give back to the UK to fund work/community/heath programs?
Seriously? Would it not be better that all the money had stayed in this country?
The EU giving a bit back does not justify the waste.

No it doesn't justify the waste and I never said it did, I was simply putting a more measured comment on to the 'political party broadcast'.

Would these same people I listed have been as well supported under this condem farce? Recent events suggest not and it's clear that people that need help will find even harder to get it.

All in it together....?
