Blears Kicks Unitary Authorities Into Long Grass
The EDP is reporting that Hazel Blears has virtually abandoned plans to create a unitary authority in Norfolk (and presumably Devon) by delaying any decision until July, by which time County Council elections will have happened. I'll make a prediction now. Eventually, the government will abandon this ill conceived project. And if they don't, the Tories should commit to reversing it, if by some misadventure they manage to impose it before May next year.
