"the Pennine Trust could at least have the decency to be honest about the reason for the proposed closure."
"How could they even think of closing this very well used centre!!??"
This is all run by the same people that gave us all the other recent horrors, including PFI, slashing disabled peoples support, wars, degraded working conditions, increased competition with chinese sweatshops, retroactive welfare rules to cheat you out of money you put into the system, increased retirement age to work you even harder for even longer etc.etc.etc.
You act as if there's no long running pattern here. Its more surprising that you lot are surprised that governments lie and close things people need.
Oh wait. I forgot. Drawing the conclusion that the government acts oppressively toward the people it it supposed to represent would mean doing something about it . So no, i stand corrected. It all makes sense.
I suppose this isnt surprising at all:
Governments murder and oppress and weak people try to convince themselves that they are oppressing by accident so they dont have to dedicate themselves to resisting tyranny. Because that would be har work. Its easier to sit in a gilded cage that becomes ever slowly less comfortable.
