Video: Stuart Richardson of the Trade Union Council speech at protest

Stuart Richardson, treasurer for the Trade Union Council, gave a speech this week at the protest outside of Birmingham’s Council House voicing his opposition to the proposed welfare cuts.

He spoke about the “disastrous” effects the cuts would cause across Birmingham and those in it. He describes the Bedroom Tax as

“a program of starvation, that is saying that people should live on, at worst, £49 a week, that’s virtually impossible to feed yourself on and buy any clothes on that scale of money but that is what’s being proposed.”
