# Not possible at the moment
We're in the devolution swing in History

I couldn't believe that they are considering giving the NE its own 'parliment'

more money being wasted on more useless self serving wankers

# Luckily it looks like
there's not enough public support for it to happen.

Which isn't suprising, considering the whole regionalist thing is a Scottish/Welsh attempt to break up England and counteract the influence we have on national politics through having 10 times more people then they do

# Nah,
The Welsh neer wanted an assembly. Less than half of the country voted, and only 53% of those that did vote said yes.

I did hear tell that it was largely a europe-driven initiative: apparrently the UK as one unit had too much voting power in the E.U., so we've been subdivided into smaller units with much less power.

The other theory is that it was just to stop the welsh from whining "..but the scots got one, why can't we?".

Speaking as a welshman, the Assembly is a load of bollocks.

# Fantastic idea
Take it to its logical extreme and I'll have my own parliament. Sounds good to me.
