Ed Balls has a little problem with basic maths

From today’s letters page in The Independent:

Mark Pack's letter in The IndependentEd Balls and Andrew Adonis complain that “Only a quarter of projects in the Government’s infrastructure pipeline are in the North-east, North-west or Yorkshire and the Humber”.

However, what they don’t mention is that these areas also contain around a quarter of the country’s population. So if Labour thinks those parts of the country should get a larger share of infrastructure than their share of the population, perhaps they could also tell us which areas they want to see getting a disproportionately lower share?
