West Midlands NO!

Regional government: unelected, undemocratic, unaccountable and unwanted

Regionalism in the West Midlands

Posted by wonkotsane on July 30, 2006

Regionalism is particularly rife in the West Midlands, second only perhaps to London which has its own elected regional government.  The following is a list of regional quango’s, government departments and officially recognised regional organisations.  The list is far from exhaustive but is a good indication of the extent to which the euroregions have infected England.  Remember, these organisations all cost money and it the taxpayer that foots the bill.  Nobody in the West Midlands has been asked if they want these organisations but we still have to pay for them.
