    Laila, you know we have local MP's? Yeah, that is regionalism. Basically that, just they have a bit more power, and the central government (AKA Labour Party) has a little less power. We already have regionalism, so it can happen. Wessexman is simply advocating, that, we actually establish true regionalist governments, not one in name with very little power.

    Lisbon is passing this year. No way will it break up.
    It will merely get stronger.

    Well narrow distributism is based on Catholic social teaching and the writings of Anglicans and Catholics like G.K Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc(Tolkien was a dsitributist as well.). Here is an intro.

    The ChesterBelloc Mandate: What is Distributism?

    More broadly it encompasses many movements and thinkers from Thomas Jefferson to Peter Kropotkin and is about a decentralised economy, more dispersed or distributed property particularly productive propety, more rewarding work, an economy more based around human needs particularly deeper spiritual needs rather than frivolous consumerism and a better urban-rural balance.

    We have MP's for boroughs and councillors for councils. Yes.

    Hmm, i'm neutral on transferring power.
    I do want reform but that seems a little radical. Would people want it?

    Perhaps you are right although the passing of Lisbon is a travesty as the people have not had a say. Treason is what it would have once been called, imho. But this does not mean it is right or what is best. The EU remains a despotism whatever scum like New Labour do.

    Depends. If you want a small government that can attend to your regional needs better, yes. If you have intelligence and realize a unitary state and a centralized government with some regionalism is better because regionalism is just ASKING for separatism, then no. Its either a personal issue or a national issue. I prefer to put the UK before my own convenience.

    Currently what the people want is irrelevant or that is how the EU and the likes of New Labour conduct business --- Lisbon being a case in point. But I would only support my measures with popular support and hence work to achieve that.
