True, that stuff stays there. But decisions over education, transport, housing etc etc should be fully devolved. Devolution is the only big idea in politics right now which is uniting people across the political spectrum.

There is a simple answer to this catastrophic loss of trust in Westminster & Whitehall: take power out of it & put it in the hands of people in towns & cities across England. This is the moment for English devolution.

For all the talk of HS2 & HS3/NPR, this is in fact the closest the UK Government have yet got to putting real substance behind the promise of a Northern Powerhouse. Need more like this!

As always, there will be lessons to learn for Liverpool 2020. But, overall, yesterday’s Convention of the North was a resounding success for . Well done to & his team for making it happen.

And, by the way, I don’t spend my time “counting my money”. I donate 15% of my salary to our drive to tackle homelessness.

I just gave all 16-18 year-olds in GM free bus travel to help them get on it life. You might not agree with it. But it’s not doing nothing.

Amidst everything else, there was a major announcement on the future of the railways in the North. This is what we’ve been calling for - an accountable railway - & we welcome what said. We now need an agreed plan to make it a reality ASAP.
