April Discussion: Is it time for England to dissolve the union?

Join us on Wednesday 17th April for our drinks and discussion on the topic: Is it time for England to dissolve the union?

St Patrick’s Day is a Bank Holiday in Northern Ireland, St Andrew’s Day is a Bank Holiday in Scotland, with the overlooked St George’s Day rapidly approaching we ask: Is it time for England to dissolve the union?

The Barnet formula ensures public spending is higher in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland than England.  The SNP are in power in Scotland, Sinn Féin in Northern Ireland, and the new Welsh First Minster in his acceptance speech talked of “unprecedented hostility towards democratic Welsh devolution from a UK government determined to undermine, frustrate and bypass the Welsh government and this Senedd…. As well as leaving Wales with less say over less money, it is deeply corrosive, wasteful, and undemocratic.”

The UK has been the most successful democratic union of nations in world history.  It is responsible for the Industrial Revolution and defending Europe from tyranny.  For all the problems of the world’s largest ever Empire, it heads the Commonwealth of Nations.

The Union has majority support in the United Kingdom, but devolution has dissolved the strength of support.  Approaching the 23rd April, we invoke the Spirit of St George and ask: Is it time for England to dissolve the union?

What do you think?  Come along Wednesday 17th April at 7pm for our discussion.

We want your input come along with your ideas and thoughts.
