One Yorkshire Campaign

Former Leeds city councillor and MP for Leeds West, Michael Meadowcroft, had some interesting things to say about the One Yorkshire campaign in an article published in yesterday’s Yorkshire Post.

“The campaign for “One Yorkshire” has stalled.”

“Unless and until it is actively promoted across Yorkshire, it will never command the power and influence it needs to become a reality. Having struggled to come together and to decide to go for one Yorkshire-wide body, it is odd that collectively, and even individually, the 22 local authorities lack passion.”

Totally agree with you there, Michael. The full article, which is well worth a read, can be found by following the link below.
