England fights to even say it’s own name-yet…

Now Wales are going to get the chance to put their spoon into the gruel,without saying please too.

A story I covered a few days ago,has got the green light.

According to Ic Wales,

Wales have one foot in the cement of a possible Welsh Parliament,due to new laws and powers having just been granted to them.

The Act, passed last week, gives the Assembly the power to draw up its own laws for the first time – provided Westminster agrees first.

A Scottish-style Parliament could be created after a referendum, which will happen if two-thirds of AMs and a majority of MPs want one.

Tory Shadow Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan said

“It is clear the Assembly is now an established feature on the Welsh political landscape.

“Devolution has helped carve out an even more distinct national identity for Wales in the last seven years”.

She also correctly pointed out that

“Within England, there are also growing calls for the country to get its own Parliament – short of full independence”.

This NEW,bigger stronger,faster,version of Wales,within the bigger picture is a big step towards what,to my mind, IS THE way to go, and that is a Federal State,like the US,Canada,Australia,etc.

What is needed now however is the equalisation of power,the levelling of the playing field,as they say,so that not only can Scotland,Wales,and N Ireland decide for themselves,but the ENGLISH TOO,as we are currently left shackled to a chain gang,devoid of any kind of constitutional rights,fighting for any scraps of inclusion from the Fat Controllers upon high in UK Parliament plc.

Unlike the three Regions,the Nation of England,has no power,no Parliament,no public face to say NO to the UK chain gang,perhaps if I pretend to be Scottish I might get somewhere?….hhhmmmm.

“AN ENGLISH PARLIAMENT NOW PLEASE”,fairs,fair and all that jazz!!
