it will be about as levelled up as this wall mounted electric fire suite a clerk of works once dragged me to and put a steel ball on top of it. As it rolled straight off the flat top of it he said: that cunt doesn't even know if it's horizontal or vertical!

Looks like no

The government department in charge of housing and local government is dropping levelling up from its title, the communities minister Jim McMahon has said.

McMahon is a minister in what is still, on its website, called the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. But, in an interview with BBC Breakfast, he said this was changing.

Asked if levelling up would remain part of his job title, he replied:

No, it was firmly tippexed out of the department yesterday, so we are now the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

Why that is important for me is levelling up was only ever a slogan, it wasn’t a thing that people felt in their communities.

He also said it was important to include local government in ministry’s title, describing that as “a refocus, but frankly … also just grown up politics”.

In a separate interview on LBC, asked if the government remained committed to levelling up, he replied:

We certainly believe in addressing the regional inequalities that are holding our communities and our economy back.

But we don’t believe a slogan fixes it, we believe action fixes it, we believe building 1.5m new homes fixes it, we believe investment in the NHS does, investment in our schools system, investment in transport and skills does.

Boris Johnson popularised the phrase levelling up, and he described it as the one of the main missions of his government when he became prime minister. But it was never entirely clear whether the main focus of this mission was reducing inequalities, or promoting infrastructure spending in left-behind areas in the north of England, and there have been reports suggesting that in practical terms the levelling up programme achieved little.

Investment. Of the woefully inadequate sort.

Saw that McMahon guy interviewed on Sky News this morning, like a deer caught in the headlights, shitting himself, repeated the phrase "the rolling hills of England" half a dozen times (literally).
