Devolution .

I think there is now a Yorkshire Party that wants a fully devolved Yorkshire Assembly, covering (I think) the traditional boundaries of the three Ridings. I don't think they go as far as Yexit (or Yoxit?) yet, however.

Scottish and Welsh parliaments have become bigger gravy trains than Westminster so don’t bother with devolution

As for Burnham, I still struggle to understand why Mancs voted in a scouser, who lives in a mini mansion outside Warrington

Shiney champagne socialist like Blair, do as I say not as I do....

I struggle to understand the Mancs as well. ... What do they see in Barney Burnham?

As for devolution, the Highlands and Islands feel little in common with Edinburgh and Glasgow. Ditto North and South Wales.
In Quebec, the indigenous people (First Nations is the current term) opposed independence because they felt that their rights were better guaranteed within a federal Canada on the (broadly) British model.
