The Scottish Empire

From today, we are officially a colony in the Scottish empire.

I’ve nothing against foreigners. Nor even necessarily against foreign rulers. But our new PM comes from the government that was fully warned about the Westlothian problem, yet went right ahead and created a deep democratic deficit.

Mr Brown has got a couple of assets: the first brain since Thatcher, and an aversion to the outright lie. He also has hands deeply stained with the blood of The Liar’s crimes. Let’s hope he can be a bit less of a charlatan than his predecessor. Fixing this particular bit of constitutional nonsense would be a useful start.

Mr Brown, so long as the Westlothian problem persists, every English vote you get is a negation of democracy.
