Wales gets primary legislation powers

! 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 Welsh Assembly has been given the power to pass primary legislation to help people with learning difficulties.

AM’s currently draw up new laws but they have to be rubber stamped by the British government before they actually become law.  In Scotland they make their own laws in their own parliament.

There are another nine orders waiting to go through which will give the Welsh Assembly primary law making powers in other areas.

Scotland got its own government after a break of 300 years and Wales after 500 years.  England is still the only country in Europe that doesn’t have its own government.

    The archbishop of Wales has said the lack of primary law-making powers for the National Assembly is immoral. (

    I wonder what Rowan Williams has to say about the lack of devolution in England?

    Few can deny that the Welsh Assembly urgently needs that power.

    It’s good that the people of England are being shat on, and those who are working for an English Parliament should celebrate each and every injustice.

    Rowan Williams is a waste of space.

    No, he makes me think of someone who the salvation army have rescued and bathed and given new clothes but the only stuff that is left in the \’Hamper of clothes for stinky old drunks\’ is an old Bishops uniform

    That must be a real sign that God hates you, not only do the Salvation army catch you and bath you, not only are the only clothes they have left an old bishops uniform but your actual job is Arch Bishop of canterbury, Jeez, you’d think a god botherer like him would get the hint?

    Was he Ginger in his youth?
