Is Eric Pickles having a go at HDC?

I was looking on the website and I found something from Eric Pickles, Communities Secretary (Conservative). He said:

"In their approach to budget setting, the best councils are showing that they understand that a strong, thriving voluntary sector is more important now than ever and could be the key to providing high quality, good value services to their residents. But this is not the case everywhere. Councils that are failing to recognise the importance of the sector are being short sighted in their approach.

HDC is looking to cut funding to the voluntary sector by 85% in 2013/14. Even Eric Pickles says HDC is wrong!
