Rebecca Long-Bailey seems to latch onto Boris Johnson’s success with Northern voters. Her being a northern MP of course makes a case for winning back voters by promising extra commercial activity in the area, if they only choose her Socialist scheme instead of Boris’s.

It is true that an important MP will stimulate an area and them going away will deaden the town. Just look at Kirkcaldy, the home-turn of Gordon Brown, that city centre died down once Gordon Brown hung up his coat.

I think promising a reverse Britain policy is just another pipe dream and not realistic. Unfortunately capitalists have nothing to offer that looks beyond immediate profits. But, what this country needs is a long-term government strategy that takes account of climate change structures like the widening of mouth of the river Thames.

Boris Johnson seems to love to Parallelise,

East from West in London with the airport plans

North from South with civil servants re-allocations.

The river bank and the buildings need to be re-allocated around London. There is no case for abandoning London as commercial and political centre.

Quite clearly because Capitalism, which is completely inflexible and unable to make structurally sound but momentarily unprofitable decisions, will bring the downfall of this society if we do not snap out of it.

A government-led sound strategy is the only solution.

The UK is a small country, the land-mass is about only double the size of land that is currently occupied by the Australian bush fires. There is little space to experiment. What needs to happen is that the Capitol London gets re-structured, with a re-allocation of the River Thames shore line and all buildings around it need to be shifted outwards.

Unfortunately Cross-rail has been built in a very short-sighted way and will become obsolete within 50 years. But that should become a reason to abandon London and shift all activities northwards.

We need to preserve the Greenbelts, the farming areas for important reasons. Shifting London northwards will destroy large swathes of our countryside.

Yes abandon the current Houses of Parliaments, built new ones further away from the river Thames, make a wonderful modern building that is not stuffy.
