I am responding to your "editorial" where you rightly highlight the unfairness of government cuts where it is now established that Wigan has now received the third largest cut in government support in the country.
Your editorial indicates that you may believe the harshness and unfairness of the cuts may have something to do with the political persuasion of Wigan Council. There may be some truth in what your editorial says and if this is true, it compounds my belief that this Conservative/Lib Dem Coalition does indeed conduct its business in a cruel and vindictive manner.
However, I am in no doubt that for Wigan Labour councillors to compare senior Conservative government ministers to those of the Nazi's, in a recent formal Council meeting, will not help matters, when a cruel and vindictive government decides the distribution of its resources.
Therefore, I do not agree with your comment in "OurView" that Wigan Council "avoids headlines and go about its business in a quiet and dignified manner." It is clearly inappropriate to compare anyone who have been democratically elected to government to those of the "Nazi's". The politics of the gutter and the political ping-pong is clearly wrong when peoples jobs, services and livelihoods are at risk.
