I CAN’T imagine being more incensed than reading the comment of a Tory councillor about ‘levelling up’ the south of Warrington with the north (Warrington Guardian, November 4).

The idea that folk living in the south of the town with their far higher standards of living and life expectancy need levelling up with some of the most deprived areas of the county is disgraceful.

Has the councillor been to Bewsey or Dallam?

Or where I live in Orford?

It is nothing less than I expect from a Tory but it doesn’t stop it being an outrageous and ill informed statement.
