Column: Hope that Yorkshire voices not ignored

Having turned their back on a Sheffield City Region deal worth £900m and £30m per year for the next 10 years, both Barnsley and Doncaster are now committed to a potentially meaningless referendum experiment to secure views of “the people” for a Yorkshire deal that the Government has already rebuked – costing the tax payer in excess of £100,000. Whilst I can see why people could be seduced with a Yorkshire wide deal – particularly those in power, I have to ask why Barnsley and Doncaster didn’t ask the same question of the people, before they arbitrarily turned their back on the £900m Sheffield City Region deal.

COLUMNIST: Sometimes our mental health becomes so impaired we need psychiatric help

We all have mental health. Just as many of us strive to get five a day or make it to 10,000 steps, it’s important that we’re conscious of trying to maintain and improve our mental health day.
