Time for a cover version of Heseltine’s greatest hit?

Heseltine’s Greatest Hits, his report No Stone Unturned and the government’s recent response to it, is prompting a much needed discussion about how government can best support the next phase of local activity to drive economic growth. His report reinforced my view that there are few new ideas. What matters is spotting those ideas (old or new) whose time has come. There is little doubt that the time is indeed ripe for many of Heseltine’s ideas – his greatest hits! But I do wonder whether we should revisit one of those hits which isn’t included in his new playlist.
