Hang so called community leaders, and Union bureaucrats from the lampost:

A SHEFFIELD regeneration agency slammed for wasteful spending has almost run out of money two years early – leaving community projects with a sudden cash shortage and putting 120 jobs at risk. Burngreave New Deal for Communities has just £400,000 left of its £52 million Government-funded budget, supposed to last 10 years between 2001 and 2011.

TO MAKE POVERTY HISTORY WE NEED TO MAKE THE MIDDLE CLASS HISTORY

TO MAKE POVERTY HISTORY WE NEED TO MAKE THE MIDDLE CLASS HISTORY

Chief executive Ann Allen has told 17 community organisations it supports – which employ 100 people – there will be no more funding from April. Jobs are now at risk as the groups have only a month to find alternative cash. <!– @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } –>

Richard Belbin, voluntary sector branch secretary for trade union Unite, said it is feared 20 of the 35 staff directly employed by the agency also face redundancy.

He said: “Management has not done enough to minimise redundancies or the wider impact on the community.”

Well fuck me, no surprise there then is there, it has always been the fact That Burngreave New Deal for Communities has been shafting the community, there might be nice new gardens, hiding the poverty inside dose not ease that poverty.

Neither dose the wholesale demolition, of Woodside, years on the land stays empty, what an utter crass waist of our monies Woodside was, it was refurbished at cost of millions then demolished because the crime and other community problems was a blight, instead of working with the community Burngreave New Deal for Communities has worked against it.

It is fine for the likes Richard Belbin to bleat on how the “Management has not done enough to minimise redundancies or the wider impact on the community.” UNITE are the same union who have shafted Sacked Cowley Workers see

The likes of Burngreave New Deal for Communities, and The Union Unite, have never been there for The Working Class and once again sadly we are proven right, the only good thing about this is that The Gravy Train has crashed, sadly those who will be impacted more are the people of Pitsmoor, as it should be known as not the coprate re branding of Burngreve, we can only hope we see the same anger as we have seen from the wildcat strikes, to the sacking of workers at Cowley, and that the nice new lamppost are placed to a proper use, for the hanging from of so called community leaders, and Union bureaucrats we can but dream:
