The problem is that Westminster MPs are at the moment acting as the first two, hence the West Lothian question.


Which as far as I'm aware, hasn't been addressed?

Alex


of course it has been addressed!!

scots are parlamentarians and can vote even where it doesnt affect them cos this keeps Labour in power and the end justifies the means.

Whilst we are on the subject of P.Ms.... Do you know what makes Churchill special?
He was the last white man to be called Winston.

Hmm. So we will have:

a European Federal-type legislature

a National Federal legislature

a regional government

a County or "unified" government

a district council government

a local council government

and of course, all their respective government departments.

Will anyone actually be left to do non-government things like drive taxis and sell McDonalds burgers?

you dont even begin to understand the west lothian question.


Well how nice of you to say so :?

The point I was trying to make is that unless each tier of govt has the same powers then the West Lothian question will always arise.

To that extent the regional assemblies in England will alleviate the question, but not eradicate it, unless they have identical powers to the Scottish Parliament or the Welsh Assembly, but since the latter two don't even have identical powers then it won't happen without radical reform.

No problem with that Andy7 - they're churning plenty of under-qualified people out of UK universities at the moment to do these very jobs!!

But you point about the many tiers of Govt is a good one - as if we didn't have enough already!

When the politicians are like cat and dog over things like the make up of the House of Lords and these new English assemblies, it makes you wonder - I would imagine the average councillor gets around 10% of the local electorate to vote for him/her, for example, hardly a ringing endorsement of that person, or for government generally.

And they want more???

David Kelly. A man condemned to death for being honest. What sort of representation on society today is that.

Tony Martin, sent to Prison for being a victim of robbery.

I used to be apathetic but now I just dont care.
