Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

I used to go to youth clubs but now there's nothing to do. We're just out here, getting up to no good.

Here's a story about the cuts in Haringey.

Is it alarmist , and overstates the bad things that will happen? Is it accurate and a pointer for the near future? Is it opposition propaganda - certainly "the government" comes in for some stick? Is it government propaganda - David Lammy is quoted as saying the cuts are a "big, big mistake" and it is Haringey which has decided to cut youth clubs rather than, say, IT, though officially Lammy is opposition?

Not alarmist at all apparently. Wood Green and Tottenham were closed today after an outbreak of disaffection.

Youth centre closures must be stopped after riots, says London Assembly member Jenny Jones (Green)
