The speech was billed as an explanation of the government’s flagship policy, but Johnson mainly focused on what he called the ‘outrage’ of glaring regional inequalities. He did, however, float the idea of powerful elected mayors – such as those already running some cities and metropolitan regions – being extended to counties and towns
