‘Divide and level up’ won’t transform Britain

This week the Government published their Levelling Up White Paper.

The Levelling Up White Paper is holed below the waterline by partisan politics and Treasury penny pinching. The government’s plans are ambitious, serious, and built on detailed, thoughtful analysis of the economic imbalances that have plagued our country for generations. The White Paper’s approach is grounded in a rich understanding of why, where and how previous attempts to resolve our problems have failed, or stalled. And yet, the plans it sets out are just as likely to be hobbled as those which have come before.
