Brown has pledged £1 million to help Cumbria after the floods. Children in need raised £20 million.
A secondary school operating budget (80% spent on salaries) is £6 million
Brown's offer to Cumbria is a flyspeck, it wouldn't begin to replace a fallen bridge.
I can see that ordinary people can't get their heads around the sums of money involved in govt but Brown should have got it by now.
