Virtue signalling? Not at all. Just being practical. Most people do not live near Parliament.

1) Councils must abandon the premise that Town Centre is either retail or leisure. We need to encourage local manufactures in town centres.

2) Councils pursuing “zero carbon” strategies (creating zero emission zones etc.) risk creating ‘doughnut’ towns – empty in the middle.

3) Community Centres should be “the space where most of our people spend most of their time. And earn most of their income”

Yes and no.

If a private business provides a poor service, then (assuming there is a market) consumers will go elsewhere.

But regarding the NHS, most people see no alternative (they either cannot see one, and/or they cannot afford it).

Perhaps the question should be... Is health a free market issue?

I don't disagree with you there. Unfortunately it doesn't help us work out the best way forward.

No, it is most definitely not "that simple".
