I see The Grauniad has a piece up about "Every English Region Should Have London's Powers".
While this would normally result in some bile, the consistency and energy expressed in the comments has been heartening.
The utter contempt that the author - a self-loather if ever there was one - has now been shown is delicious, especially the expose of his recent past.
As you may know, I posted on the Regionalisation By Stealth some time ago. They never give up, these vile parasites. All they want are comfy, unchallenged, taxpayer funded featherbeds.
