I am not arguing for another tier of local governance but a need to reform local government in England and the wider British state to give the nations and regions of it the powers needed with a major programme of democratic reform — no ifs, no buts. Democracy, devolution and subsidiarity should be the driving principles with powerful regional and national governments able to build strong, vibrant, regional and national sustainable communities within a democratised political system where each level of government has clear established and legally binding rights and responsibilities that cannot be taken away at anybody’s whim.
