With the vicious cuts instigated by the previous ConDem Nation – and now the Tories returned to power – the UK Fire Stations are being closed at an alarming rate. This is an ideological attack from the far-rightwing Tory government on the staunchly leftwing Fire Brigades Union. This Tory government does not respect the men and women of the Fire Brigade, and is not interested in the welfare and safety of the general public. The remaining Fire Crews are being asked to cover ever greater distances with dwindling resources, and the only thanks they get for their selfless profession is the threat of unemployment! Although I am only one person, I decided today to photograph my local Fire Brigade Station out of respect for the work they do, and as a historical record – just incase the Tories decide to shut it down! Thank you to the Fire Brigade – past, present, and future!
