Just in case you were in any doubt whatsoever about whether the Tories care at all about anyone but Tory voters, this it-would-be-funny-if-it-wasn’t-so-tragic story should make things clearer. They fucking do not… I urge you to read the article in full, but the bones of it are this: The office coordinating the Northern Powerhouse project from Sheffield is being closed with hundreds of jobs moving to London. Farcical! As Richard Littlejohn would say, ‘you couldn’t make it up!’
Surely Osborne (pictured above looking like a seven year old who’s been taken to see where daddy works), the man who never stops banging on about it, can’t ignore this devastating upset to his beloved Northern Powerhouse project? I wonder how much he’ll have to say about this in days to come? Probably nothing. I bet you don’t really hear about it on the news, either.
