Worse still is the government’s threat of a further assault on England. Whilst they are delaying and struggling to work out the detail, Harman yesterday confirmed that they want to establish “regional accountability” around the artificial EU regions proposed for England.
This despite the 78% "NO" vote in the North East, the only area allowed a referendum on regionalisation. Ms Harman's attitude demonstrates so clearly the contempt New Labour has for the electorate in England.
"You don't want what we propose? Well, you WILL have it, you WILL - because WE say so!!" The arrogance is frightening.
