Its easy to be cynical, especially when it comes to this smug, podgy-faced ****, who seems to have transformed into an apparent social revolutionary. But... can anyone remember an opposition leader not making this exact speech, almost word for word, just before an election.
Devolving power, giving it back to the people, restoring representative 'local' government. Blah blah ****ing blah.
Weren't Blair and this bunch promising exactly the same 12 years ago? And they've delivered the sum total of 2 monstrously expensive, toothless talking shops in the provinces. YAY!
Does anyone believe he'll actually commit to one single word of this?
