Having less money no reason to have less money, Cameron tells council


Cameron writes to council about funding

Prime Minister David Cameron has written to his constituency council to remind them that having less money is no reason to have less money.

The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is “disappointed” at proposed “cuts to frontline services, from elderly day centres, to libraries, to museums” – insisting that not having any more money for anything is no reason not to have more money for them.

His letter explained, “Times are hard and we must all tighten our belts, but not having any more money is no excuse not to have more money for the things I think are important.”

“Have you tried the family trust fund? George is always telling me that’s a great way to put your hands on some cash when you’re urgently in need of it.”

“There’s some paperwork, obviously – but I understand it’s a pretty straightforward way of getting a couple million pretty quickly.”

“I simply won’t accept this defeatist attitude which says that just because the pot is empty, then there is nothing else in the pot.”

“If that were really true, how would we be able to find an extra £35bn for a Trident replacement, eh?”
