Brown must do better

It appears that Gordon Brown wants to introduce regional mayors in England to redress the imabalance caused by devolution.

Scottish Parliament = regional mayor

Welsh Assembly = regional mayor

Northern Ireland Assembly = regional mayor

The question is, will the people of England be duped into believing that a regional mayor is equivilent to devolution of power on a national basis.

I for one will not fall for that one.

Mr. Brown must do better than that for England.

Fairness and opportunity for everyone

In the newsletter to Labour supporters sent by Alistair Darling after today's budget this slogan was included:-

Labour's choice: Fairness and opportunity for everyone in Britain to secure a strong, sustainable future.

I guess nobody has told him that devolution has led to gross inequality for those of us living in England then.
