Could a federal parliament save Britain ?

Dr Jonathan Munday describes an idea for a federated parliament over on Conservative Home. I've heard Iain Dale mentioning the same idea. I have to say the idea has quite a bit of merit - go and have a look for yourself here...

Just think how mad it would make all the fringe Celtic socialist spongers by taking away their personal gravy trains ! Its worth it just for that.

Munday said: "To correct the current imbalance in the constitution by which Scots and Welsh MPs have the right to vote on English matters of Health, Education and the Environment, when they have no right to vote on those issues for their own constituents and when English MPs have no right to vote on these issues in Scotland and Wales."

Is this true? I don't know much about UK politics, but this seems like a problem.

It sounds a bit like Washington, D.C. over here. All citizens of the U.S. have federal representation in both the House of Reps and the Senate -- except the people of Washington.

Mr Shaved Ape - yep its true. We English are a mild mannered people who will forgive a lot and hate to offend. But even we are pretty fed up with the way Britian is now run for the advantage of the Celtic fringe - with common English people seen as nothing more than a cash cow.
