Looks like the north of England is not going to get levelled up much after all; Tories in former Red Wall seats going to be looking anxiously over their shoulders

Cuts to social welfare in the form of Universal Credit will hit Red Wall families. So will inflation
 They probably won't vote Tory next time.

Its mad the amount of spelling mistakes in that article

Tory MPs were in open revolt today after the government announced that it was cancelling the eastern leg of HS2 and downgrading plans for rail in the north. f**king up plans to further siphon of funds to cronies
