Significantly and at odds with the BBC spin, 40% of respondents said that services have got worse and only 15% had said they are better. On specific services the findings are mixed with positive ratings for refuse collection, libraries, schools and leisure services combined with strongly held views that the quality of elderly care, hospitals, police and road maintenance is lower.
The most important fact of all of course (and one overlooked by the BBC) is that 75% of the total public spending cuts earmarked by this government across all the public services are still to implemented. And that’s just from the spending plans already set out.
