Deprivation Index

What with us reaching peak celebrity deaths I would imagine William Hill and others will start a book on who is the next to go. It will become the new betting craze.

Ref the Knowsley Academy school that was in the news earlier in the week regarding its decision to no longer offer A levels. Knowsley is one of the most deprived areas in England and the government needs to give the local kids there whatever opportunity it can, not allow the profit motive to rule.

I compared it with where I live on a Liverpool Echo comparator.

A big difference - however we suffer more from crime (naturally, being more affluent and hence a target - along with all the Range Rover Defender thefts from farms) and have a worse record on environment, although it doesn't explain how this manifests.


  1. You drive everywhere. People in Liverpool can walk. Even if they can afford a car.
