Last November, Croydon’s two Tory MPs – Gavin Barwell and Chris Philp – voted to support cuts to local authority funding which will see their own constituents in Croydon lose £44 million.

But this week, the two MPs merrily supported the transfer of £24 million in extra ‘relief funding’ to neighbouring Surrey’s much wealthier constituents.

I’m no expert on political campaigning strategy, but it doesn’t sound to me like the best way to treat your voters if you’re hoping to get reelected.

Perhaps Gavin and Chris are hoping their constituents will have forgotten by the time of the next election?
