The government spends more money on transport projects for Londoners than on those for the rest of the country combined, a think tank says.
The Institute for Public Policy Research North says £2,700 is spent per person in London compared with £5 per head in the north-east of England.
In a report out this week IPPR North says there is a "sharp disparity".
London - £2,731
South-east of England - £792
East Midlands - £311
West Midlands - £269
Yorkshire and Humberside - £201
North-west of England - £134
Eastern England - £43
South-west of England - £19
North-east of England - £5
The government says its investment strategy is to maximise economic benefits for the country as a whole.
I have posted this just in case anyone had any ideas in their heads that the Government actually knows that life exists outside London and the South East, or even cares for that matter. Remember, the futher away from the seat of power the less you get. The people living in Brixham would agree with that.
