Radical localism from the LGA

A quick post to bookmark this interesting report -Who's in charge? a manifesto for new politics- from the Local Government Association.

The usually very cautious LGA calls for such radical changes as rolling back the unelected Quango state; radical decentralisation to bring decision-making down to the lowest possible level; making local NHS bodies accountable to the electorate; a genuine power of general competence for local government, and real fiscal autonomy, including returning to councils the power to set local business rates.

One for the new Cornish council to be shown perhaps.
