English people, particularly in hard-pressed urban areas, are starting to feel they’re not getting their fair share of the national pie. I will fly the English flag in the West Midlands. I am a West Midlands patriot. We have put up with this unfairness for too long. Scotland receives £10,536 per head of public expenditure compared to £8, 816 in England and £8,750 in the West Midlands.
We demand that the government in London gives the West Midlands a fair funding deal.
