Update on correspondence and new section on website

.

George Morran emailed re the WMCA: wmneg2-stats

“My starting point has to be what future we see for Westminster, Whitehall and the shape of local government. These issues can only be seen in a wider English and UK context.

“The WMCA is a vehicle for Westminster and Local Government as it is.

“If you take my view that strengthening civic society and moving to a more sustainable economy are needed this requires a real downsizing of Westminster and Whitehall, the transfer of power and resources to the English Regions, a much more localised system of local Government and voting reform to give a wider range of interests a stake in new arrangements.

“Focusing on WMCA diverts scarce resources. We have to challenge the status quo and work up a real alternative to the Westminster and big LA conspiracy to maintain their stranglehold over Government, economic development and public service delivery”.

Despite George’s comment it seemed good to open a new WMCA section on the website after receiving a 50+ paper by Richard Hatcher.  There is also a link to the WMCA Mayoral Election slides presented at the last meeting.

To see it, go to https://goodmorningamericaword.wordpress.com and hover over the WMCA headline to find these two entries/links.

Supporters of John McDonnell and/or UBI will be interested to know that random visitors flocked to that article – over 150 people in a few days – from many countries – see left.

And 18 people found the WMCA section only 15 minutes after posting!
