The Local Government Association calculates that by 2020 Councils in England will only be able to fund waste collection and social care for vulnerable children and adults. These services will consume 90% of Council budgets; just about everything else - libraries, swimming pools, parks, sure start centres, museums, youth clubs, welfare advice etc. - will go.

Unless the funding formula for local government changes councils like Southampton will be confronted with this 'graph of doom'.

Despite the rhetoric on 'localism' and the 'big society' this government appears hell-bent on the destruction of local government. The cuts in Southampton are a taste of what's to come.
