Hackney anti-cuts campaigners deliver Christmas card to Downing Street

The card wishes David Cameron a Merry Christmas from everyone who could suffer as a result of the public spending cuts

Anti-cuts campaigners from Hackney delivered a Christmas card with a difference to the Prime Minister yesterday (December 8).

Lower Clapton residents joined Labour councillors from Leabridge ward on the doorstep of 10 Downing Street as part of a push called ‘Their cuts – Not Ours”.

The satirical cartoon card, signed by Hackney residents, wishes David Cameron a Merry Christmas and a Happy Chanukah on behalf of all those who will suffer because of the Lib-Con government’s public spending cuts.

“He will no doubt have a wonderful Christmas with his family at his multi-million pound residence while our constituents will be living in fear of losing their jobs, their homes and their savings - like Bob Cratchit in Dicken’s tale about Scrooge,’ said Cllr Ian Rathbone,

“There will be no happy smiles or rosy future to look forward to, no prospect of University for the young when fees have been jacked up so high.”
