Theresa May stresses importance of reducing north-south productivity gap

This report, as with many before it, beggars belief at what appears the total ignorance of the fact that deprivation, low wages, public services, housing and a whole raft of other issues are only being experienced north of Watford.

The south east IS NOT just London! It is also a collection of counties below the Thames where low wages, deprivation, chronic lack of affordable housing and decimated public services are rife.

The vision of the rolling green hills of the South Downs and Sussex/Kent Weald as one travels south to the promenades, piers and coastal countryside hide victims and consequences of austerity just as harshly affected as areas of northern England.

In southern costal towns there are areas that rank alongside anywhere else in the UK for all the wrong reasons in this country divided by a political system that sponsors the equivalent of economic terrorism on the low to middle income earners and ones needing social care assistance.
