Enough to warm the cockles...

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.

This whole 'regions' malarkey is just twattish EU-nonsense. But devolving as much power, decision making and tax raising powers from national government back down to local councils seems like a good deal to me.

Sure, they will fuck up, but at least on a human scale, which you can understand and against which you can protest etc.

Yes, but also to relinquish powers to the individual. If we just move powers about between layers, I do not think that any significant benefits will accrue.
