Fair and progressive cuts? Or not.

The graph above is lifted from the Birmingham City Council Business Plan 2011 (of which more to come).

The further up the chart, the more deprived the council area. The further to the right, the bigger the cut imposed by this government. Birmingham, being an area particularly affected by deprivation, predictably faces one of the biggest cuts of any local authority.

Truly, we are all in this together. Just that some are more in it than others.
