UK centralisation

A few weeks ago I wrote about the harm done by centralisation in the UK. Today I received the January journal of a UK-wide professional body. 45 out of 47 vacancies advertised are in the southeast of England. As I said earlier, Britain's chaotic transport system and distorted housing markets can't be resolved until the government-created centralisation (actually, "southeasternisation") is recognised and ended.
