5.0 out of 5 stars Lucid guide to the future of devolution in the UK, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Reformed Union: Britain as a Federation (Kindle Edition)
David Melding explains clearly why the present state of devolution makes for an unstable Union. To rebalance the Union, England, as one of the four British nations, has to join the party. This requires either an English Parliament or a robust arrangement at Westminster putting domestic legislation for England under the control of MPs who represent English constituencies. Melding prefers the latter as it would allow England to find its political voice while developing constitutional reforms. The future is federal, something which Melding examines in detail, giving a clear exposition of what it might involve for the whole people of the UK and debunking one or two myths on the way while making due allowance for British constitutional traditions. What might seem to be a rather obscure topic is covered in a concise, readable way that makes it an excellent guide. a valuable introduction to the debates that will take place over the next few years.
