Everybody should google "Write to them" and go from there. It takes about 2 mins.
Let the feckers try to explain themselves away.

It is worth hanging on to that list as a reference. Only Cardiff seeing an increase and some of the poorest areas in Wales receiving the biggest cuts. It is truly shocking and highlights the Cardiff State syndrome that exists in both Welsh Labour, and Plaid Cymru unfortunately, as they have put their names to this. Don't forget inflation makes these figures much worse.
I have just been watching Nicola Sturgeon's address to conference. Love her of hate her, she is all inclusive as far as Scotland is concerned . She is looking at the whole of the area to develope infrastructure and wealth. Compare this to the completely useless Carwyn Jones who has little consideration for anything outside of the Cardiff bubble.
I hope we vote these Charlatans out as sson as possible and that Plaid get a leader who will actually live up to the term 'Party of Wales' and not merely hold hands with the Red Tories.

Assuming everyone is earning a wage and paying tax on it?

I would assume that people moving to the area are doing so for work and the average wage there is higher than any other area and unemployment lower.
So the direct contribution before WAG grants would be proportinally higher than anywhere else.

Many are completely unaware and just accept that we are a one town state. Also the Cardiff based media will not report anything about this either. I did not see any of the local news this evening. Did they touch it? I suspect we won't get much other than WOL crowing about it.

It was reported on the BBC Wales news. All authorities bar Cardiff getting cuts, Cardiff +1% I believe. Sorry to burst the bubble.

Not at all. As you can see you caught me mid edit. Nice to see it mentioned I must admit. I will be more than happy if the media started highlighting the inequalities. Was it done in an investigative way with Drayford in front of the cameras having to justify it?

Eh? There are in the region of 110,000 properties in Swansea. Very roughly the average bill is £1,000 , that's £107m . Expenditure i'm led to believe in the region of £750m. This is equal to approximately 15% of the budget.

If you also factor in Non-Domestic rates that is an additional £75m (approximately), nearing 25% of the Authorities income....

Still following Dr's orders!

I feel the same way. It is Plaid for me as the best of a bad job. I really hope they change the Leader. I had high hope for her but she is far more interested in party politics than being the Head of Party that actually want to govern for the whole of Wales.

Well NTM suggests it is because of population increase. This of course assumes the population is falling in the rest of Wales. A fair assumption I would think as Cardiff continues to overheat. We chuck more money at it and rinse and repeat whilst the rest of the Principality declines.
The problem for me I that with the highest paid jobs and business rates the income the LA gets from its local taxpayers is higher than the rest of Wales. Seems unfair however you dress it up.
