    All previous attempts at decentralisation have involved subsidies, inducements and phantasy projects which always result in ‘grant farming’ and disappear as the gentle mists of morning after expiry.
    If the continued metastasizing of the Great Wens on the coast is to be halted (ha!) and even reduced (double ha!) this could easily be achieved by cdasing to subsidise and featherbed them.
    If the urbanoid basket weavers and latte bathers had to pay the full cost of their water supply, their sewage disposal, their food supply and their generally gold plated lifestyles then they would be a great deal less crowded.
    Unfortunately that would mean hundreds of thousands of useless mouths to feed if they moved beyond the sandstone curtain.
    How about an internal passport system for when they attempt to escape the crumbling concrete wastelands?
    Paper shuffling is not a useful skill set.
