A group of Conservative politicians just told poor people it’s their fault they’re dying young
MARCH 22ND, 2018 Steve Topple

During a public council meeting, a group of Conservative councillors literally pinned the blame for falling life expectancy on poor people themselves. They may as well have said ‘it’s your own fault you die younger than us!’

Shocking figures
During a meeting on Thursday 1 March, the Green Party leader of the council opposition, James Burn, raised the issue of life expectancy in the Solihull area. He was noting figures that showed the average life expectancy for a male from the most deprived part of Solihull is 73.5 years, compared to 86.1 years for those the most well off areas. As BirminghamLive reported:

A woman from the most deprived background will, on average, live to 79.5 – almost ten years less than the 89.4 years expected for those living in the most comfortable circumstances.

But Tory responses to Burn’s comment that the figures should cause the council “sleepless nights” were shocking.
