This was despite their last minute pre-election pledge not to cut the bins. Conservatives have been lobbying the government over recent months to provide extra funds for the city which will not only …

“The lunatics are now in charge of the asylum”

Southampton City Council faces huge challenges in the years ahead. It must save £30M to balance the books next year alone. This is a big task, if at the same time Council Tax is to be kept down for residents who are already struggling with the rising cost of living, and services that are important to local people are to be protected.
