Youth Service Call In
I was at the meeting only for an hour as I had a prior appointment but in that hour you could see from the demeanor of the cabinet member that like Maggie Thatcher “the cabinet member was not for turning” You can read what happened at the rest of the meeting and the final outcome at these blog sites, if you have not read them yet. Steve Swift, Andrea Davison.
I feel sorry for the youth of North Lincs, who, are going to get a service that is inferior to the service they are receiving now, in my mind.
I’ve seen and heard the rumours that are running around about what action can be taken to try and save the youth service. This might sound a bit cruel but that battle is lost. People must move on from this and learn. One thing that has to be learnt from this is that the “open and transparent” tory run council don’t like criticism (you could see that yesterday)
At yesterday’s meeting you could see that some form of organisation was going on by the youth of North Lincs, just by the numbers there, but this was at the end of the process, it should of been at the beginning
I did a blog on the 13th January pointing out the strengths of being a member of a union, this in my mind is the only way to go, but to go that way you have to have a strong union with strong leadership (which I believe is sadly missing at this time) There are rumours going around in the circles I am privy to that hopefully that is soon to change.
If you are not a member of a union, please join. Remember there is power in numbers.
