Why would any local Labour (and UKIP) supporters who voted for Brexit think that the right wing Tory government we’re going to get will do them any favours?
Expect more austerity; expect more local authority and regional cuts and expect a large share of the saving of what was the EU contribution to be used as tax cuts for the already wealthy.
At least with the EU, some money did come back to our region even if it was our own money.
Since when did this Tory government really help the poorer regions?
It really is turkeys voting for Christmas! Doh!
