Sky News published this video item, entitled “Prime Minister’s ‘levelling up’ plan branded ‘vapid’ by critics” – below is their description.
Boris Johnson has urged people to “email me” over his plan to offer England’s counties the same powers enjoyed by city mayors as part of his “levelling up” ambition for the country.
But critics dismissed the Prime Minister’s “rambling speech” – which covered a number of policy areas although few new announcements – as him “making it up as he goes along”.
And Mr Johnson’s former chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, described the PM’s “levelling up” agenda as a “vapid” slogan that “objectively does not work and shows the opposite of ‘strategy'”.Sky News YouTube Channel
