Will ‘no’ vote open door for more power in North-East?

I SEE the future as being an opportunity for the North-East. We are starting the end of top-down Westminster control as power and money is de-centralised from London.I AM delighted that the people of Scotland have voted to remain part of the United Kingdom.I HOPE we can use the energy built through the referendum campaign to create a fairer country for everyone. THE referendum debate highlighted anger at Westminster from many who feel that the system isn’t working.I WELCOME the outcome of the referendum, which keeps the United Kingdom together. AS far as regional devolution is concerned, it is fair to say that there is no real enthusiasm for any more political bodies. WHILE Germany has progressed to European economic dominance, all three UK parties have failed to deal fairly with the North-East.
