The Green manifesto clearly said that they would
Resist, to the greatest extent possible, the service cuts and privatisation imposed on local councils by the Conservative and Lib Dem Government. Where the Coalition leaves no choice, protect services for children, vulnerable adults and those on low incomes.
Green Manifesto, Priority Number 1
Having detailed all their cuts, the Greens say they have some spare money available for new projects - new projects that they then set out.
But if the cuts mean they have money left over, this surely simply means they have chosen to make more cuts than they needed to.
The Greens may believe that their new projects are more important than the items they have cut, but that doesn't change the fact that they have made cuts that they did not need to make. So the Greens have deliberately acted against what they said was their number 1 priority in their manifesto.
So much for the Greens 'fresh start for a fair city'.
