so its a whatnow?
Business Secretary Vince Cable has launched the new Urban Innovation Centre, funded by his Department of Business, Innovation and Skills' Technology Strategy Board Innovate UK. The Urban Innovation Centre is intended as a space for "greater innovation and greater synthesis" for organisations operating in urban environments, …
"Why, if the UK performed so consistently highly in innovation and research, are so many of our cities lagging behind the rest of the country in terms of growth?"
Because cities are full and "urban sprawl" from the cities into the surrounding towns means that you need to reclassify the city boundaries rather than spout bullshit claims to the press about how cities aren't growing?
The "uniquely British solution" for any problem is to make lots of disparaging jokes about the French, then realise that they own half your infrastructure.
Thus I conclude that Cable is suggesting privatising city councils, and selling them off to French-led consortiums.
