All very well and good having double the money down south but if ya paying 4 times more for your house technically that makes northerners much better off

...valid point, but deprivation is more than just income - it's a whole basket of stuff including health, education and crime.

I like Oldham and it's definitely on the up with M&S on the way and the tram has also improved the town, it also looks great in the summer with it's floral displays. The poverty in certain parts is obvious and I wouldn't want to play it down but there are far worse places to be.

But I thought McMahon had done so much to improve the town ...

Doesn't help when the govt distributes to favour wealthier areas.

 

Funny how Northern councils have had cuts and South Western ones haven't....

But somehow council tax is mainly cheaper in the richer rather than the deprived areas, nothing to do with the Tories of course. :wink:

That will be the Tories looking after their own then.

 

In the last 20 years......less than 1 year of a Tory Government, 5 years of a coalition government, 13 years of a Labour Government

 

In Oldham 3 years of Lib Dem council and 17 years of Labour council.

 

Think about it
