Regions Doing Better in Europe

I just noticed that Tom over on The Green Ribbon reports that the regions of the UK are doing better than England at influencing policy at the EU level. Having been a spectator to the admirable level of engagement with Brussels here in Belfast, this doesn't come as much of a surprise. Though the press release referred to only talks about the former, politicians and civil society groups (sometimes to the resentment of those politicians) have been instrumental in forming links with EU institutions and in forming policy here. Good stuff!
