Sutton - Getting a Bad Deal??

As usual at this time of year we see the regular letter from Sean Brennan to the Minister for Local Government saying that Sutton is getting a "bad deal" from the local government settlement.

So a borough like Sutton where people are broadly affluent with an average house value of over 300,000 is getting a bad deal. Perhaps people should think about this a bit.

Perhaps Lib Dem controlled Liverpool City Council, with all its social problems should get a bit less and affluent Lib Dem Sutton should get a bit more. Do people think that is a good idea? If you live in Liverpool you will on average live over 5 years less than a Sutton resident. If you had a choice where would you choose to live?

Instead of saying Sutton is getting a bad deal, perhaps Sean Brennan should use his strong social conscience to look beyond Sutton's borders and perhaps ponder that living in Sutton is a privilege that people in many other parts of the country would love to enjoy if they could afford to!!

Sutton people live longer because they look after their health. I.e. less smoking, fatty food etc.
