Mass Library Lobby in Westminster whilst the "Suffolk's Libraries IPS" board meets
|Libraries Lobby outside Westminster|
I called in to Westminster to take a look at the lobby and one thing struck me. It was the same thing that has been striking me during the Beccles Free School debacle.
So here as in Beccles with the free school the Government is not behaving in any way like a truly conservative government. Once again the desire not to fund libraries comes more form the free market neoliberalism that cannot see the benefit of anything that cannot turn a profit.

The mass lobby was organised by Speak Up for Libraries an umbrella organisation including the WI, professional library association CLIP, Voices for the Library and UNISON.
