Such as on dole for all the people made redundant ?
Look at the shining model of the South Yorkshire coalfield.
Spend 10x as much as you used to spend on subsidizing coal on dole, inward investment grants, regional development grants, depressed area grants, extra policing, extra healthcare etc.
And 20years later you still have an area that s completely fucked.
But at least you now have millions of quid going to Moscow to pay for the gas you are using instead. Well done comrade Thatcher - have an Order of Lenin
