#LeaveEU #devomanc is analogous to Gordon Brown’s EU claim. Look at Northern Powerhouse example

Gordon Brown says we enjoy holidays in Europe and football supporter’s enjoy European competitions, so we should stay in EU.

This pro-EU argument seems to be that because I would like to see Wigan Athletic play against Man Utd.,or Man. City and like to visit Manchester to shop, then I should welcome Wigan being run by a Mayor in Manchester.

He’d best check again.

It was Osborne, who imposed a Mayor on Greater Manchester, despite a few local referenda opposing a Mayor.
It is Labour politicians in Greater Manchester imposing Osborne’s austerity measures in the towns and cities tethered to Manchester. (not a good analogy for the main Labour platform of reforming EU from within)
Frankly, his arguments look a bit sick in view of what has happened to democracy at a local level.
