Err, no….

A new retail quarter for Sheffield was also put on hold and a £13m grant to buy the old Outokumpu steelworks in the city was scrapped, in a further sign that many traditionally Labour areas are now losing out under the coalition government. Others include Leeds, Birmingham and Hartlepool.

Many traditionally Labour areas are losing the preferential treatment they received under the previous government is how that should read.

Now you can of course argue that that\’s what Labour governments are for: to benefit those who vote Labour. But if you do you cannot turn round and complain when a not Labour government decides to benefit those who did not vote Labour.

    It is not even that. What is happening is that NOT(Labour) is no longer benefiting Labour voters.

    Why do such things need government subsidies? If they were potentially profitable (ie what the people wanted) the banks would be queueing up to throw money at the project. The fact they aren’t simply shows that they cannot be profitable and the locals don’t actually wat the bloody things.

  3. ‘Labour’ areas are presumably what foisted the last bunch on us for 13 years and comprehensively wrecked the country. Punishment should come down on them like the hammer of God. Given the state of the public finances, it should be no more societally acceptable to be a Labour supporter than a neo-Nazi.
