I have written about this before, to be honest I am really puzzled why Southampton have such a big problem and why are they are demanding the Council pays back the European aid? It’s about UK Plc ! Southampton have benefitted from the draw and pull of the South East, more specifically London, is this not an unfair advantage? My message is keep going Joe Anderson and make sure this happens for the North, the impact could be massive for the economy. Success for Liverpool will breed more high growth businesses, create more new starts and help existing pubs, restaurants, clubs and the broader tourism sector.
It seems like a bit of a no brainer to me.
