However this Tory line is weak:
a) because they plan to give the Welsh a referendum over ending their 'elected assembly'. (NB. 25% of Welsh electors voted to set up their assembly, only 22% of London's endorsed the GLA experiment).
b) because 'being endorsed' by being elected is not a factor that stops the Tories wishing to abolish one-fifth of MPs.
(see the Conservative website
on local government
on axing MPs, Welsh vote
on cutting waste)
There must be some very special reason why the Tories want to keep this extravaganza that burns taxpayers' money, draws powers from local authorities, and promotes EU/PC policies?.
Far better to give powers back to local people, cut out the Mayor's 'political advisers'and 'media army' and transfer productive staff to other London bodies?
