Paid a flying visit to the Cheshire West Against the Cuts demonstration outside the Conservative Party offices in Chester today.

Twelve o’clock saw more than a dozen protestors arriving to site themselves at the main roundabout. Drivers started tooting straight away in support.
Shirley Clout, a local mother and protestor said “As a child my parents had a booklet on the shelf – the Beveridge Report. Everyone used to talk about how important it was. This government does not have a proper mandate to change how the welfare state works. They are putting the clock back. They haven’t consulted people properly“.
 
Union members including PCS and Unison joined the protest.
Placards included:
“Reject 40 per cent cuts in higher education”
“No tuition fees increases”
“Tax the rich. No education cuts”.
