It was resoundingly rejected, it wasn’t even close, something like 70% of the folk who voted, voted “no, fuck off you cunts!”
Now we have the current incumbents banging on about a “Northern Powerhouse”, except this time we don’t get the right to say “no, fuck off you cunts!”
And to add insult to injury it is being championed by slimey Gideon Osborne who cares about as much about the North as I do about “peaceful” cunts drowning in the Med!
You think us Northern folk would be “mad forrit” but no, and here’s why:
1. Well it have any bearing on any law making? No.
2. Will it have any bearing on decisions made in Westminster? No.
3. Will it make it easier to collect and appropriate taxes as we see fit? No.
In that case what is it then? I’ll tell you what it is. It’s yet another layer of meaningless and pointless bureaucracy which will need new infrastructure (i.e. buildings cos the existing council ones won’t be good enough), and new personnel (cos the existing councillors won’t be good enough).
And who will pay for this pointless exercise, why us Northern twats, and hence why we didn’t want it in the first place you cunts!
