Devolution: English style

#2
But, but, we already have the EDL to protect us. Here is their shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury discussing neo endogenous existential growth theory.

Bizarrely in other countries it's the wealthy parts that want to devolve from central government, in Britain it's the poorest parts.

That's because they don't think their richer parts will devolve to Scandanavia or back to UK with a better deal.

FREEDOM! No not you.

that would actually be quite funny as an independant south east would collapse under its own ego and self importance while the rest of the country carried on as normal without the financial drain or inflationary impact of london house prices and wages.

if it wasn't in danger of imploding under a snp govt then an independant scotland could find itself moving south county by county using the german sudeten lands principle. finally scotland can have an empire

You've obviously never been to Chatham, Swanley, Gillingham or Sheppey or any of the other shit places in the south east. London skews the figures, take it out of the equation and the south east is as badly off as everywhere else.

I haven't read the article but anything Kelvin Mackenzie is a bloody good weathervane of morality and good sense - if you do the opposite of anything he advocates then you sure to be in the right. In any event he's one of the scum we'll be able to deport north once Scotland becomes independent.

When you signed up as a lad you said "rape", so rape it is.

Well, if it means we could deport you back there, then I'm all for it.

Hows your trip to Polandistan going? Has the snow got you yet? The wandering jock has turned up, it's lovely and warm back here, and this is a *SUPER* cup of tea I've got right now. I had a lovely fag earlier as well.

You were doing so well until your last line!

K Mackenzie is as Scottish as Cameron and Blair. You can therefore keep him thank you very much.

I'm all up for an Independant State of Nottinghamshire.

For a while when I was moving around a fair but, I used to put "Embassy for the Peoples Republic of West Yorkshire" as the first line of my address.

I often wonder if stuff still turns up there addressed as such, and what people make of it

Sorry matey, you can't pick and choose, Mr Blair was educated at Fettes, a rather posh public school, in Scotlandland, so you can keep him, Cameron goes with him as part of a matching pair, they're worth more together, if only for scrap value.

You also get Mackenzie, Macdonalds, and for some strange reason Brown.

Enjoy your independence once the borders are closed, and you really can't send them back.

its all well and good saying can we be this or can we be that but who pray is going to take lancashire and merseyside? better by far to finish the watford gap and declare an independant THE NORTH seeing as the signs are allready up an d us northern types being somewhat frugal.

scotland was never a proper country anyway as it was too busy infighting.

It all depends on your perspective.

There used to be sign on the road off Portland saying 'Welcome to the North of England' as you approached Weymouth.
