MENU Unleashing Yorkshire’s Potential Through Devolution

English Regionalism

Yorkshire is not the only region in England demanding recognition and representation. Currently only London has anything resembling regional representation. Cornwall is perhaps the most notable region outside Yorkshire demanding some sort of regional representation probably because the Cornish regional movement, Mebyon Kernow, has been established for many years and also because Cornwall has had some recent successes in its campaign for regional (national) recognition. However, other regions such as Wessex, Mercia and the North East also have groups demanding regional recognition. It is unlikely that current "devolution proposals " will result in any real moves towards regional representation but we shall see. This section of the website has been set up to monitor the progress, or lack thereof, towards English regional devolution and to provide a commentary as events unfold.
