Giving vs Taking

A delightful graph from Calamities of Nature showing the amount of taxes paid vs the amount received for US states; handily colour-coded for Republican-leaning and Democrat-leaning.

Be nice if we could do the same for the UK. Half the data is already available from the Communities site; all that's required is how much each council hands over to the government.
