Not new; but on Labour List I have just come across this.
Who wrote that for him ? Whatever does he think it means?
It gets funnier: "Britain now has the most extreme regional inequalities of any country in Western Europe. Labour pioneered devolution in Government. We devolved power to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland". (That's unedited, verbatim - and I don't detect irony. Or anything, really - certainly not an open mind as regards possible cause & effect.)
