Giving Away More of Nothing

So, the party leaders say they agree - in principle - to more devolution of power in the UK; though Labour will fight to retain their rotten-borough parliamentary seats in Scotland.
They would all spend more money on this exercise; and they will also talk about giving powers to support economic growth in the regions. But there will be no serious plan, no measures that will actually enable people to make the economy grow in the only way that matters: in material production and in generating intellectual property that can be sold to the rest of the world.

Britain is well down a slippery slope, and this diversionary politics can only further deprive the country of the will and the ability to take the measures that are needed to reverse two generations of severe economic decline.
