The Devo Disaster
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
Boris Johnson has been quoted, stating the obvious, that Devolution has been a disaster and was Tony Blair's biggest mistake.
I agree, devolution is a disaster. It has bred a vicious nationalism that threatens the United Kingdom. The English are always the target of nationalist rhetoric. However, it is the English who have lost out, their is no English Parliament.
Devolution can only work, if we as nation take the path to federalism. For that, we would need a constitutional referendum.
If any politician or party is brave enough to embark upon such an idea. The question should be; Should the UK federalise or abolish all regional assemblies? Meaning, scrap devolution or become the Federated States of Great Britain.
Whatever happens, the current system is failing to cooperate and is weakening national cohesion. Something must be done.
