Probably not. Ben. T. Houchen has had over £1.5 Billion of our money given to him so far. That's still nowhere near the amount of money taken off the 5 Councils that cover the area theTees Valley Mayor represents, over the last 12 years by the way. Since he was elected as Mayor, there has been a net loss of at least 16,500 jobs in the Tees Valley and that was using figures from over a year ago.
Ok, so you saying that £600k was well spent.
Fair enough.

Well said. People need to realise that so called levelling up is a total con artist trick. The Tories are putting in a fraction of the money they've ideologically taken out of areas like Teesside. It's stuff like this that could make me really angry, but I choose not to be!

ThePrisoner comments gets more thumbs up than the original good news comment.
Says a lot about some of the people on here.
There isn’t one person on this board who isn’t delighted when there’s some good news for Teesside, the problem is there’s a few ( yes Tory and/or Brexit supporters) who are desperate to amplify the smallest bit of good news to mean The Tories, Houchen or Brexit have been a roaring success for Teesside. So basically to those of us who’ve been having these debates for years the thread title might have well have said……

Great news - Well done Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen & business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng……..Ner, Ner, Ner!!

And long may it continue, but I’ve said for years Teesside will have to drag itself up and because nobody else is going to do it for us.

Could it be because your thread title was basically "Well done 2 Tory politicians".

Perhaps if you'd just said "great news for the area" then people wouldn't have assumed it was political?

Just a thought like.
