I'm glad we've pulled out of the Sheffield City Region deal. It seems to me that we'd be very much subsumed into the 'massive' city if we went ahead. The HS2 route looks to have been sucked into Sheffield, rather than via Meadowhall, where it would have had good links with the other three towns. I fear for Rotherham's identity if it goes forward. It's closer geographically to Sheffield of course, but it has always had it's own character, in my experience. I'd be happier with a 'One Yorkshire' devolution deal. Having several larger cities might help prevent one becoming too dominant and sucking up all the funds. You can only imagine that the government's insistence on a greater Sheffield is because they fear One Yorkshire becoming the next Scotland/Catalonia?
