  • Pity about the strange sub-titles – more work needed on this.

    I work in the public sector and having done my sums for next year, I will be £70 worse off each month (not including the pay freeze and the effect of inflation). The increase in the personal allowance is more than offset by the significant increase in pension contributions imposed by this government. I am willing to take some pain for the greater good of the country, but it’s £70 I won’t put back in the econmony, and it has a knock on effect on my local area. Add to this the idea of regional pay and it becomes obvious why the North is feeling the pain of the cuts much more.

  • “Pumping million pounds into schools …”?

    Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the pupil premium essentially a redistribution of funding within the education budget? I understood that overall spending per pupil was actually going to decrease in real terms. Is that not the case?
