  • Pickles and the rest of the government have charged into a delicate situation swinging an axe! The only experienced minister (Ken Clarke) spoke before of the mistakes he made when he first came to power under Thatcher. He said he rushed in without thinking of the consequences.

    The same mistake is occuring here. Localism is misleading when so many of government's functions are being transferred to expensive civil servants in Westminster rather than using better value expertise in the regions.

    The biggest fiasco is the Regional Growth fund. Phone your local council's legal department for a view on procurement or state aid... You'll soon see the dearth of expertise in assisting the Regional Growth Fund bidding process. This is mirrored by a similar lack of skills in running large scale regeneration projects. It'll be a terrible crash and unfortunately it is wholly foreseeable...
