London is the obvious example (Police, Transport, and strategic Development, Planning, Transport, Housing and Environmental issues). But it also includes the new metro Mayors (Greater Manchester, West Midlands, Merseyside, West-of-England - i.e. Bristol). And a few specific local authorities (e.g. Doncaster, Tower Hamlets).

Almost, but not quite! ;) Bristol actually has two elected executive Mayors, one Labour and one Conservative. It's the Labour one, the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees who's blocked the Arena.

The other one, the Tory, is the Metro Mayor of what's usually referred to as Cuba - "The County that Used to Be Avon"!

It's just totally bonkers and results, as you say, from a mish mash of incoherent local government reforms. England should just have a uniform system of regional government which would solve a lot of consitutional difficulties. The problem is that, with the possible exeption of Yorkshire, the's little popular support for an extra tier of government.

I think it's safe to say that the Bristol arena is never getting built. What a utter waste of money.

Great for us though, however.
