The West Lothian Question and others

According to more popular bloggers than I, Wales and Scotland are to blame for the fact that the Tories didn't win.

Frankly, I think it's more down to a combination of general Tory uselessness and expenses sleaze, combined with Celtic suckling at the state's teat. However, it is curious that there is such a remarkable difference in how the various "countries" vote.

And so I reckon it's time to give the porridge wogs and the sheep botherers the chance to put their own fucking money where their overloud mouths are. Let's cut the Scots and Welsh and the Northern Irish loose -- they already have their own parliaments. They can rule themselves. They can find their own fucking money, they can have the natural gas and they can fuck off. The English will have enough pleasure subsidising northern monkeys and the in-bred Cornish. But at least we won't have to pay for generations of ungrateful porridge wogs and sheep molestors any more.

I know I'm not alone in this.

So fuck 'em. Let them see how fucking sexy tax and spend is, when they're the cunts being taxed.


Update: Bojo agrees.

Agree wholeheartedly, this was a subject that my colleagues and I were discussing last night as well. We came to exactly the same conclusion just let them all go their own way as long as we stop having to pay for it.

There is a downside to your plan, OBo, England will end up with 2 land borders with the EU, as those Regions take the Euro coin.

With an economy that has far fewer hangers on than before and that includes the only tax-exporting regions in the UK (ie London, the South and East Anglia) I suspect we'd be able to run a currency that would easily be strong enough to survive the death of the Euro. I think borders would be their problem and not ours.

Sounds fair enough. But you get to keep Gordon.

Works for me.

they can have the natural gas

Except it's not all their oil and gas. I'm happy that they take the northern fields provided they acknowledge the question of ownership first and they take it with a clean break. ie no maintenance post divorce.

Porrige wog here.

Not a nationalist though, so I quite liked Freedom & Whisky's plan:

"Each parliament to be fiscally independent with contributions being made to the federal government in proportion to population."

Be worth it if it would stop you lot wingeing.

Should note that we dumped Labour out of the Scottish parliament at the last election and that most of scotland (excluding large parts of Glasgow and Fife) is, or would be, naturally conservative. We just hate the tories.

Um, what have the Cornish got to do with this unholy mess, pray tell.

Oh, Lordy, yet another hangover from the English-fucking-Empire.
London gets a higher subsidy than Wales or Scotland - I know, I know, that's because you've got to put up with all those hooray-fucking-henry bankers all the livelong day, but please, they'll fuck off to Frankfurt or Amsterdam once CamCleggMillibando smash their toys. Plus Michael Howard + David Davies on the top table???? Who'd want to live in a country run by twats like that?
So, okay, go it alone see if Eurozone Celts give a fuck.
