Vlog no. 4 - Speaking at Cabinet about Devolution
Yesterday, Gateshead's all-Labour cabinet met for the 4th time to try to take a decision on whether or not to be part of the North East devolution deal. Yet again, they deferred a decision. While the dithering continues, Labour in the region have demonstrated they could not even lead the way through an open door. They have fallen apart over the devolution package which is now having to be shelved. The North East will gain nothing from this shambolic mess. Other regions will be powering ahead leaving the North East behind. My views are in my latest vlog above. The cabinet debate, in which I speak, is below.
