No More Top Down Solutions To Our Rotten Constitution, A Constitutional Convention And English Parliament Now
I am sick of spending the last thirty years of my life disenfranchised- so STV or AV plus. The only assembly that does not have some form of PR is Westminster. There must be an end to 'safe' seats.
An English Parliament in the Commons, and if so desired by Scotland,Wales,Ulster and Kernow, a Federal Parliament to replace the House of Lords to deal with Defence and Foreign affairs.
Return all other functions of the State to Regional or County Level
End all 'professional' politicians, how can a twenty four year old with zero life experiance become an MP !
A Swiss style cantonal system is what is desperatly needed, if the North East wants to be a socialist region- fine, if the South-West wants to be a Libertarian/Social Democrat region - fine. Just do not ask the South West to fund Socialism when it has not voted for it. If Kernow wants to re establish the Stannary Parliament and organise it constitutional position on the lines of Jersey, it should go for it.
Our current Constitutional 'fit up' ended in 2009 courtesy of this Darien Government and this Rotten Parliament. The sooner the likes of Alan Johnson take over at the top of the Labour Party,the better. People who understand that it has all come unravelled.
Brown is in denial, Cameron is panicking to get 'successful' people into the Conservative Party to replace the dross that are leaving under a cloud or were only ever lobby fodder sitting there for decades on a sinecure of cheap booze and expenses. What is certain is that will not be business as usual
