Funding Cut

It looks as though the government has put the mockers on some of Croydon's regeneration schemes. Chancellor Alistair Darling announced during the Comprehensive Spending Review that the £77M that Croydon was supposed to be receiving in funding through the Local Enterprise Growth Initiative (LEGI) may be unavailable in the future.

It seems that Croydon Labour group leader, Councillor Tony Newman (ex Council Leader), is trying to blame the current Conservative council for this.

Given that it was the Labour administration under Newman that bankrupted Croydon in the first place, I find his comments to be "a bit rich".
