Can you tell me what the last Labour government ever did for England cos I still haven't a clue. They gave Scotland devolution, not England, remember?

Who knows? Maybe size is irrelevant both in terms of area and population. Maybe you're right though. The question is what would be the actual drawbacks to devolving power to each county and city as...

Thanks for the reply. The USA seems to have a good system of local government from your description. So you're saying England's regions should have a similar relationship to the big cities within...

People keep saying government regions need to be big to work but is that really the case? Why couldn't smaller government regions like each individual county not be viable as well? The point about...

Just one question. Why have other federal countries like the US, Australia and Germany not experienced the disasters you predict for England following the same model?

I agree with this also. I prefer devolution to each county and city or to a smaller group of counties compared to the size of regions England is officially split into.


City regions are a good idea...

Totally agree with everything you said there. The more powers devolved to the Scottish Parliament the more likely something will have to give and that England has devolution too.
