Co-Operative Drinking More Difficult

Recommended Posts

The modest funding which would help communities own public houses on a co-operative basis has been withdrawn.

Pubs are important to communities and are probably one of the easiest co-operative enterprises to establish.

Making it more difficult clearly shows that encouraging 'community' and Big Society will be rhetoric only.

They are going to cut that £3.3 million from somewhere; if not here it would be schools, military etc the fact that government spending is monstrous doesn't make it a small amount of money. This might have been a fantastic proposal that should have been kept, it could just as easily be a waste of money that no one even notices and doesn't help anyone (like the debt advice services the government spent a fortune on and helped virtually no one).

...this sort of thing went on before Labour tried to jump on the band wagon in March with funding....why a subsidy when we have their deficit and debt to scale..?..get real...those who really wish to form cooperatives to do this will continue as in the past.... <_<

They should remove many of the taxes/licences (which can cost a fortune) to make running a pub more profitable. Why take with one hand and then selectively handout 'help' with the other hand?

The government should just back the hell off and let people run their businesses themselves. Lobbying for assistance, while money is creamed off between the passing from their left hand to their right, is surely not a 'solution'.

...that was one of Nulabours way of mismanaging the economy...the tax and benefits system is riddled with it.... :rolleyes:

Big Society is Unfunded

yes well done, that's the whole point, whereas 3 years ago we could depend on council officers at £30k per year to look after things like neighbourliness, looking out for local kids, and keeping your front step clean, now we rely on neighbours who do it for free, like it used to be before

bargain
