The concluding part of our series on the state of Stalybridge
Friday 20 September 2014, Westminster. A typical work day, but a seminal moment North and South of the Border. A sigh of relief for the Coalition Government and Labour as the break up of the UK was postponed. In a referendum the previous Thursday, Scotland voted against independence from Westminster: 55% NO, 45% YES. Shortly after the result and in the run-up to the referendum, there was talk of greater devolution in England. In this case, its main urban areas, federal units, or an English parliament.
