CONDEM GOVERNMENT VICIOUS CUTS PER PERSON IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 15th November 2012

CONDEMS SLASH £152 FROM EVERY SALFORD PERSON

The ConDem Government has slashed £152 a year for every person in Salford, one of the highest cuts in England. This compares to an average cut of £61 per person in the rest of the country.

The figures, based on government grants to councils since 2010, show that the poorest cities in the country are getting hit the hardest by public sector cuts.

Salford is in the top thirty local authorities getting hammered the most by ConDem Government cuts. While the average government cut in England is £61 a year per person, in Salford it's £152.10 per person, despite deprivation being one of the highest in the country.

Data compiled by Newcastle City Council based on government grants, and produced as a cuts map by The Guardian yesterday (see here), overwhelmingly shows that areas with the highest deprivation – the North West, North East, Midlands and inner city London – taking the brunt of public sector cuts.

Salford is ranked 26th most deprived area in the country, with almost a third of its children officially living in poverty, plus high youth and adult unemployment. Yet its government funding has been cut disproportionately, compared to richer boroughs.

On our own doorstep, while Salford gets a £152 cut, neighbouring Trafford, relatively affluent and ranked 190th in the deprivation league, gets a cut per head of `only' £73.12 per person. Way richer areas, like Richmond Upon Thames (ranked 286th) and Elmbridge (ranked 322nd) actually gain from the ConDem `cuts'.

The Labour Party argues that the ConDem Government is penalising Labour controlled councils, which inevitably have the highest rates of deprivation – on average, Labour councils budgets have been slashed by £107 per person, while the figure falls to £36 for Tory controlled councils and £38 for LibDem controlled councils.

"This looks like local government funding is being used to alleviate the impact of cuts on Tory voters at the expense of Labour voters" says Labour's shadow communities spokesman Hilary Benn "How on earth can Eric Pickles and David Cameron justify this?"

Local Government Secretary, Eric Pickles argues that the figures are fair - "The poorest areas receive the most money", he says. But an analysis of official Government statistics (see link here) shows that he's talking through his arse.

In 2011-12 Salford Council received Government funding of £1,177.42 per person. Salford is the 26th most deprived authority in England.

In 2011-12 Trafford also received Government funding of £1,177.42 per person. Trafford is the 190th most deprived authority in England.

About time voters in Salford demanded action from Ian (who is he?) Stewart the None City Mayor of Salford. Both he and BIFFO Lancaster continue to pay the overpaid lazy Scary Spicer £210 k per year whilst their constituents wallow in poverty. The latest rant which the Mayor has sent to all council workers is to condemn the media for nagetive reporting about him and his highly paid spin Doctor. Meanhwile the imcompetent 12 Assistant Mayors, Do nothing Dennet, Lisa Thicko Stone, the crankies Anne Marie and Coen draw the money without challenging the numpties Stewart and BIFFO (Big ignorant Fick Oath) Lancaster.
