    It would be interesting to see the absolute budgets and political party in charge of each council

    Thanks for the info, really useful to us. We do a hyperlocal blog and get lots of hits on local politics stories, so this was great.

    If Oxfordshire has only a 1.87% cut, why are the councillors suggesting closing 20 libraries?
