Well what do you expect when that moron of a housing minister, Caroline Flint says that Milton Keynes is more environmentally friendly than the fast disappearing Buckinghamshire countryside that surrounds it.

Labour came to power in 1997 on a ticket of decentralisation. They gave power to the Scots and Welsh - but in England have relentlessly tightened its grip. It's all about central control - the non elected regional quangos are nothing more than nodding dogs - tasked with shoving through millions of houses and huge infrastructure projects. All they do is obey ministers.
