TOP TEN TORY FAILURES #2 – from ‘the most unequal borough in Britain’

Every day between 20 Feb and 5 March, when they will announce their alternative Budget, Kensington Labour Group will announce an area of extreme inequality in Kensington and Chelsea ‘the most unequal borough in Britain’.

The borough known as ‘The Royal Bank of Kensington and Chelsea’ has £180m in Reserves – and some of the poorest residents in London.

2. LIFE EXPECTANCY

Average life expectancy for men in London is 77 (for women cc 5 years longer); in the borough it’s an amazing 82yrs. This is an average, including:

Golborne Ward – 72yrs

Hans Town, Knightsbridge – 92 yrs

This is a quite extraordinary difference in life expectancy of 20 years within just three miles. Don’t cross the road to Josiah’s to buy your newspaper; you could lose ten years of your life. Where is this?
