Goverment cuts maps shows north south divide

cuts_map.jpgThis heat map of the cuts does a pretty good job of showing the north south divide in the way government cuts are hitting people.

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool having taken one of the worst cuts in the country is shown as having lost more than £40 per person out of next year's budget. St Helens and Knowsley are in the same category.

On Wirral £20 to £30 per resident has been lost. Sefton fares better losing 'just' £10 to £20.

If you exclude London boroughs, the south of the country clearly fares much better than the north.
