By Giuseppe De Santis – Something interesting is happening in Barking & Dagenham. As Labour councillors are planning to cut £20m in the next financial year, more people in the borough are asking, loudly, to reduce the number of councillors. Such requests have been made in a public hearing last week and in a letter published in the Barking & Dagenham Post. More interesting still, Terry Justice, a former Tory councillor, went further by suggesting to reduce the number of councillors by 2/3 so that the council could save at least £1m in the next four years.

By Giuseppe De Santis – A few days before the 2011 local elections, Margaret Hodge, the Labour MP for Barking, dismissed any criticism about the demographic changes that took place in the borough by saying that things change and people must get used to it. A result of this ‘change’ was laid bare by the Barking & Dagenham Post, who ran a recent front-page headline claiming that the £23.9m given by the government to add extra school places is not enough and that Labour councillors want hundreds of millions of pounds in additional funding.
Ten dedicated London British National Party activists gathered 130 more signatures for Party campaigns in Romford on Saturday. The branch received strong support for both Nick Griffin’s EU ReferendumNOW petition and the campaign for an elected mayor for Havering.
By Giuseppe De Santis – During the campaign for the local elections in Barking and Dagenham in 2010, ‘anti-fascist’ groups were delivering many free papers in the borough, telling people that, if the British National Party took control, plenty of civil servants would be sacked, essential services would be slashed and many schools and libraries would be closed. It's sad that many people voted Labour out of fear only to find out that the newly elected Labour councillors are making deep cuts anyway without slashing wasteful expenditure.
