Unemployment Claimants By Constituency

Here (pdf).

Top of the list for Jobseekers Allowance is Clare Short's Ladywood, with 24.5% of males and 10% of females claiming. Of the top 25, all are Labour except for one Sinn Fein and one Respect.

The bottom 25 are all Tory or Lib Dem, with Lib Dem Gordon and West Aberdeenshire having the lowest percentage of claimants.

Now if only I could find the equivalent for incapacity benefit, that Glasgow and Liverpool could take their rightful places !

What a cheek, lumping in Glasgow with Scallyland. At least Glasgow has some good points to go with its bad points!

Birmingham, an unemployment blackspot? What the hell's going on? It is booming. How are 25% of the male population unemployed in that constituency?
