London Gets 24 Times More Infrastructure Spending Per Head Than N E England

Recommended Posts

holy crap.

I thought 'capital spending' it might mean all spending. Like arabs building a 1000ft phallus.

But, no, its just publicly funded.

Sickening, absolutely sickening. London is who we need independence from, not the scots.

One example.

The Southbank Centre's income in 2012/13 was £42 million - £9 million from the artistic programme inc. ticket sales, £12 million from commercial activities, and £4 million from fundraising, and then £17 million from an Arts Council revenue grant. So 40% of its income is from public subsidy.

The equivalent percentage (i.e. public subsidy) for the Wales Millenium Centre in Cardiff, income £23 million, in the same financial year was 19%.

Despite the Southbank Centre having a much larger potential local audience, a much larger percentage of whom are much wealthier.

What would happen if they started charging for entrance to London's museums and galleries again? Would tourists stop coming to London, or perhaps they would explore more of the UK other than just the capital?
