English Constitutional Convention

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The English Constitutional Convention launched officially today at Westminster Palace.  The ECC is a joint effort between the Campaign for an English Parliament and the English Democrats with a number of Lords and MP’s as patrons.

The official launch was prematurely reported yesterday in the North British press but has still made it into the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian today as well as the BBC News website which produced an unusually unbiased report spoilt only by failing to mention that Lord Falconer is an unelected North Briton and shouldn’t have any say on whether we have a parliament or not and by finishing on a quote from Wrekin (Telford) MP, Mark Pritchard bizarrely claiming that giving England a parliament would be playing into the hands of the EU!  Here’s some news for you Mark – the EU wants England broken into regions, not given a national parliament.
