Former Labour Minister says he’s backing Yes and it would also help the regions of England

August 13, 2014

Former Labour Minister Peter Kilfoyle (from Liverpool) has said in an interview that he is backing the Yes vote in Scotland. He said a Yes vote would allow Scots to make decisions for themselves and would also help the regions of England.

Interview, including audio clip, can be found here

Last night’s BBC Two programme by Andrew Neil,  Scotland Votes: What’s At Stake For The UK? has had mixed reviews. It was only ever going to be contentious because that’s Andrew Neil’s style and it seems to be the only way we can present political argument in the UK these days. There was however a passing reference to devolution to the regions of England whatever the result of the Scottish referendum and Simon Jenkins (bless him) said regional politics would be energised and more of a sense of identity in ‘Yorkshire certainly’. The programme can be found on BBC iPlayer here
