Policing cut – West Midlands Police’s budget has been cut by £130 million. We’ve lost 2,000 police officers under the Tories.


Education slashed – By 2020 the Tories will have slashed education budgets in the city by £50 million - the equivalent of 1,300 teachers.


NHS in crisis – More patients are waiting over four hours to be seen in A&E, and it's increasingly hard to see a GP.


The Tories have it in for Birmingham – The Tories have cut Birmingham's budget by over £650 million, but Theresa May found £1 billion to fund her friends in the DUP to keep her in power.
