Campaign for the North

A new group has been established 'Campaign for the North' which has just launched it's consultation document. It calls for a federal solution to the question of devolution it the UK including offering voters in the North the same 'Devo Max' settlement that Scottish voters are being offered.

I have long said this would be the best answer to the challenges that face the north. Cities that are disconnected by road and rail but all striving for an airport. A north that see's disproportionate spending in the London. It's time as part of Labour's commission to look at a federal solution rather than a dogs breakfast offered by the Tories which allows London to continue to make decisions in the north.
