Thread Name: Llantrisant FC has moved!
Subject: RE: Llantrisant FC has moved!
Tremendous news from Llantrisant Folk Club, when all is doom and gloom from the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taff, following Tory chancellor Osborne's savage and disgusting cuts across the whole of Wales.

The spin doctors and the BBC (the Government's tame mouthpiece) might have you believe that the recession is over, but it's only just beginning. In Rhondda Cynon Taff (Llantrisant Folk Club's borough), libraries, leisure centres, OAPs' day centres and swimming pools are closing and the borough looks likely to be plunged in the dark by switching off half the street lights; the jewel in the crown, Pontypridd's Muni Arts Centre, has been axed. Cardiff City Council is considering selling St David's Hall (home of the go-ahead Roots Unearthed series) and The New Theatre, and the Night Out grants (local organisations' lifeline for musical events) have ended. In Neath Port Talbot, Hollywood actor Michael Sheen is campaigning against the closure of the Youth Acting Workshop, which has transformed young actors' lives.

Osborne's war on Wales is making a cultural desert of the whole country - not that he would care...
