Amusing

We must also make it clear that this national renewal should begin with a new constitutional settlement. A federal state with far greater devolution of power and financial autonomy to the nations and city regions. The new cadre of elected mayors should have a leading role in developing trading, cultural and educational partnerships with their counterparts across the world. As Andy Burnham has argued, it would be a fundamental misreading of the referendum result to believe people voted to take back control from Brussels simply to give it all to Westminster.

So we’re leaving the EU in order to impose the EU method of government, by those euro-regions, then, yes?

  1. It amuses me that Guardian writers can tell the rest of us what we ‘must’ do to govern the country, and yet they can’t even run a bloody newspaper profitably.

    A period of silence from these proven incompetents would be most welcome.

  2. Just because it came from the EU, doesn’t mean it was a bad idea. There’s a lot to be said for the Swiss cantonal system.

    Besides, aren’t we all in favour of letting the jocks crash and burn on the SNP’s Murphy-esque policies?

  3. “As Andy Burnham has argued, it would be a fundamental misreading of the referendum result to believe people voted to take back control from Brussels simply to give it all to Westminster.”

    No, but with the “put the whole lot into British law” idea, we will instead be putting it into the hands of our beloved British gold-plating bureaucrats, and we will then attempt painfully point by point try to get it back again. Good luck with that.

    When the speed limits were put down to 50 mph, overnight as I recall, it took many months with endless “consultation” to have them raised again.

  4. Yet another G article about the EU which does not mention the main thing that the EU spends money on.
    Devolving powers sounds good though, but I think he approves of it because the Tories are mainly in charge. He wasn’t so loud about it when Labour were having a go.
    But first we have to leave the EU.

  5. All of Bliars squad of elected Mares (sic– and they are) need to have their offices abolished from underneath them.

    With Seigfried Khan at the head of the list.

    All beyond the wit of the Fish-Faced Hag/Hog ( Hog/Hag?) of course.

  6. The UK is one of the most centralised states in the world. Reversing the trend of the last century (or longer) and devolving powers downwards is not in and of itself a silly idea. No chance of it happening though as that means the power hungry Whitehall will have to give them up.

  7. That’ll be a regionally organised system of governance that can’t do anything because the Left don’t want a ‘postcode lottery’ for anything such as taxes, public sector wages, public sector provision of services, benefits etc etc.

  8. If you’re going to quote Andy Burnham, at least give him his correct title: Lord Blood-on-his-hands of Mid-Staffs.
