Brexit-backing Sunderland says it is not receiving same level of funding outside EU.


Quelle surprise.......what did they expect? :-|


Sunderland City Council leader Graeme Miller has accused the government of trying to sneak through a watered down replacement for European Union funding in a blistering attack.


The North East received £437 million out of the European Structural Investment Fund (ESIF) pre-Brexit between 2014 and 2020, but there are suspicions that the replacement UK Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) is unlikely to live up to those numbers.


“When you look at England and you look at the regions that are benefiting from ESIF, the UK SPF, to be quite frank, is not going to support to those levels,” Miller said.


No problem.....as long as they remember the upper limit on any UK grant to replace what they used to receive from the EU must be less than 45pence per person per day.
