Brum pays the rent for Londoners.

Birmingham is going to be ordered to borrow £400 million to help pay off rent debts built up by Councils in London and Manchester.

Each year our housing department has to contribute £75 million to other towns who do not do such a good job as Birmingham in collecting our rents. We are only £682 million in debt (only?).

Well it seems not before time this system is going to be ended, but before it does we have got to make a one time payment of £396.4 million payment into a fund that will pay Manchester £273.6 million, the London Borough of Newham £552.6 million and the London Borough of Hackney £780.5 million.

So the next time somebody from either of those places starts going on about what a dump Brum is and how better their respective towns are just say to them “well it costs us too much to pay your rent, so we can’t afford to spend much on our own town”
