    I am of the opinion of strengthening local boroughs power. Give them more say over their area as only they can work towards the locals needs.
    I hate this thing Westminister does where it does one blanket law for all and expect everyone to follow it.

    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 private 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.
    Your obviously not one to advocate separation of church and state? What does a nation/economy have any business or anything to do with in attending the spiritual needs of its inhabitants? Thats a personal issue. Why involve the state or even the economy in such processes? Its daft.

    That is true.
    I wonder if consitutional reform will be in the campaign at our next general election ...

    No but that is a slightly different matter. As you are already aware I don't advocate strict seperation of church and state in England. I'm not a Roman Catholic like most narrow distributists anyway, although broadly speaking distributism could be used to describe people as far apart as leftwing anarchists and classical liberals.

    What does a nation/economy have any business or anything to do with in attending the spiritual needs of its inhabitants? Thats a personal issue.
    I very much disagree. Economics has a very important moral area, it is after all about human relationships.

    I personally don't want it at the moment. I think it would block necessary change for several generations and the people right now simply would not go in the right direction, imho.

    Describe in what sense the economy should attend the spiritual side of its inhabitants? I take that means banning certain material?

    So what sort of hunting is allowed in England?

    That is not what I meant. I was talking about a more meta-level. The general classical economic view is morality should be left out of economics, a narrow distributist disagrees. He sees economics as part of human behaviour and society and hence very much part of the moral sphere.

    And yet you trust the EU?

    A gov't the size of the EU could never be properly accountable, democratic or preserve an ordered liberty.
