My petition: For the North East of England to be annexed by ScotlandThe problem faced by northern England is the lack of interest from both Conservative and Labour governments. Conservative give nothing to the North because they know they do not get voted in by them.
The English Labour Party give nothing to the North because they know they will always be voted in by them. The English Conservative Party give nothing to the North of England because they will not be voted in. It is a no win situation.
Since the days of the Romans the North has been subserviant to doing the bidding of others without asking any questions.
Being part of Scotland, with which we have a natural affinity, will add the zest that the North needs after being overlooked and used and abused over the years by English governments. Scotland's borders used to reach deep into england, as far as Doncaster. In fact Doncaster still is part of Scotland after it was taken by Scottish forces in the 12th century.
