What an utter chunt. Rishi and truss are despicable individuals who will watch people and towns go under financially with no intervention people affected by the upcoming recession will be just cast aside.

Houchen saying he didn't mean how it's come across.

BBC News - Tory leadership: I took money out of deprived urban areas says Sunak
Sunak: "Black is black"I'm not quite sure what else:
"We inherited a bunch of formulas from Labour that shoved all the funding into deprived urban areas and that needed to be undone.
"I started the work of undoing that."
Could possibly mean. Or how it could be taken out of context, but defending the indefensible is kind of what they do these days.
They do think we're all idiots clearly. If I was them I'd probably have just gone for the tried and tested "he misspoke" line. But they're the experts, in my job I don't have to lie on behalf of people.
Exactly what I was thinking.So he started undoing formulas inherited from Labour... that would be the last Labour govt in 2010. So didn't he inherit the formulas from his Tory predecessors as Chancellor - Javid (2019-20), Hammond (2016-2019)and Osborne(2010-2016)
