Library of Birmingham blame game starts again

It looks as if the members of the wound up Library of Birmingham Trust are trying to blame the Council cuts for their inability to attract funds. 

Tory Councillor Randall Brew said once the cuts were imposed it was hard to attract funds.

Unison Birmingham did not support the Trust and was campaigning to keep the Library in public ownership.
