Occupied Country

Guy Fawkes' blog of parliamentary plots, rumours and conspiracy reports:

The Tories Gored Labour in England, winning the popular vote by 60,000 more votes than Labour. (The Tories picked up 8,086,306 votes, Labour trailed with just 8,028,512.) So its fair to say that England is under foreign occupation by a Scottish socialist party unsupported by the population, with only 1 in 5 of the English backing the regime. Expect the Campaign for an English Parliament to gain traction if not actually start an insurgency...

To the barricades!

Surely time is now ripe for a federal solution within the Uk, let the members sit 2 days in the house of commons as national MP's looking after national affaira (the armed services and a much reduced foreign office) if this is not too lomh. Then a couple of days as sub national parties ion England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

let each region tax and spend as it sees fit, and either fund the forces through a fixed charge to each oarliament, or create a national tax to charge individuals

I'd settle for muking Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen while renovating Hadrian's wall

I meant Nuke-ing (as in Trident missile) and rebuilding Hadrian's wall (several miles south of Birmingham)

Oh come now, not the nukes. Not until after I've had a chance to enjoy those cities on a budget (unlike the last time, when I was broke). Hadrian's wall, though, that I could accept.

Can you wait until I've moved please Stuart.

At least rebuilding Hadrian's Wall returns Berwick-on-Tweed to its homeland, and a great chunk of Northumberland besides. Scotland would then be bigger than it's been since the time of David the First. In fact, why not hand over Cumbria and Durham as well, then you would have restored David's borders? But would the Scots want all those Geordies? Could they even understand their speech?

More to the point, the Geordies wouldn't want to be lumped together with a load of bloody porridge-gobblers. There are enough of them in Newcastle as it is.

The Alchemist is considering leading a revival of a certain verso of a certain song, the one which runs:

Lord grant that Marshal Wade

May by thy mighty aid

Victory bring.

May he sedition hush,

And like a torrent rush,

Rebellious Scots to crush.

God save the Queen!
