How nice that Mrs May has announced the end to austerity. Does that mean that we in Northumberland will now get back our bus services, libraries, post offices, jobcentres, old folks’ nursing homes, youth clubs, magistrates courts, day centres, council offices and officers, local hospitals, police stations, tourist information centres etc?

Perhaps Guy Opperman might ask this question of Mrs May on our behalf or even have a crack at answering it himself – before the next election.
