10. One thing I will say for local situation where I am....

...is that the local councils (both County and District) where I am are actually not that bad. Certainly a lot, lot better than the councils you get over the border in South Yorkshire. All of which are currently Labour controlled, but some are a lot better than others. The less said about Rotherham council the better for instance.

And going back to the "Northern Powerhouse" nonsense, there has been a new development. Derbyshire Tories are promising to hold a referendum in Chesterfield on whether the borough should join Sheffield City Region. Which of course is not cynical grandstanding in any way at all.
