In this edition special guest is Shadow Minister for the Tees Valley Greg Clark MP. He is joined on the sofa by award winning Northern Echo journalist Chris Lloyd. In the second part of July's Northern Decision Makers our guest is Alistair McColl, Chief Executive, Business Link North East.
So are the Cameroons just a pale shadow of New Labour? Are they simply apeing Blair's successful "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime" mantra? Listen to Greg's interview and decide for yourself!
