10 "The regions should be allowed to set their own priorities"

30 GOTO 10

Also, if we are having 'city regions' what do we do with the 'outside the city region regions'?

Having said this, the 1974 2 tier system seems absurd to me, as was the current Tory government abolishing the regional Government Offices set up by the previous Tory government on the grounds of the gordonbrowngordonclownmorelikeist tendency's belief that regions are an evil plot of the lizards in Brussels. I think regions (the 1994 Major ones, why not?) and unitary authorities probably is the best solution. Can't see the South East Province Assembly in Guildford attracting the best and brightest of the age though, somehow.

Big sigh.
