533 English MP's (said to be 543 in 2023 after London's boundary review) out of a total of 650 MP's in the UK Parliament, obviously making any Celtic Nations MP's Vote (117 MP's between the other Three UK Nations) largely Irrelevant when Voting, within a majority vote system, in the UK (English) Parliament in London on UK Wide Law, Foreign Policy and Finance allocation, making any decisions ultimately England's only, deleting the Celtic Nations out of UK Democracy. For London to suggest that because Wales now has limited Devolution (since 1997) that this does not matter is a Nonsense, as Devolution has No Power over UK Wide Policy Making!
The 'UK' can essentially be seen as 'One Party State' system based in London, as it's exclusively within 'One Nationality' (as one party states are usually associated with Nationalism), within a Secular UK, in a Union Consisting of 'Four Internationally Recognised Nationalities', with the 'First Past the Post System' only allowing 'One of Two' main English parties to be voted into the UK Government, using the 85% majority English population who are more likely to vote for an English party, indeed they have no other option in England as Welsh and Scottish political parties are not Normalised, Supported or Facilitated to run for election in England, but English political parties are Supported and even Expected by London to run for election in Wales and Scotland, without Question, but Crucially backed up, and Normalised, by the London Mainstream and Regional Media. Meaning that Wales or Scotland could be run by an English based political party, but England can never be run by a Welsh or Scottish based political party! Yet even Wales and Scotland as fellow Celtic Nations would not have the Brass Neck to run for Election in each others Country, as it would be seen as stepping on each others toes, and interfering with their internal Politics. Say for example you have a group of people, in the case of England, who are the English Establishment based in London, at its Power Core with UK Wide State Sovereignty so can Dictate the UK political system to suit their needs, all White and English people (with Obvious Tokens, who are also primarily English). If you want to give the impression of a UK 'Two Party State', simply Divide that Same General Group of People with the Same Anglo-Saxon Nationality and Perspective (and usually from the same Class), with the main objectives of Favouring England, 'into Two', with slight differences on the fringes (particularly since the power of the Unions has been diminished to almost non-existent since the 1980's miners strikes), one with a slightly more Developed Sense of Society than the Other (Labour), and the other more Financially minded (Conservatives), but essentially the Same, creating Two Main London Based Political Parties (Labour & Conservatives), but Both with the Same Type of People Within the Same Nationality, chosen through their candidate selection process, giving the impression of a Two Party UK State, but in reality regarding 'Colonial Attitude' and 'English Nationalism' (both wanting things to remain the Same), is a 'One Party State' within only ever 'One UK Nationality', a 'One Nation State', who rule the UK as a whole from London, with London Sovereignty won Centuries ago. Basically, the more English Nationalistic you are as One of the Main Two Political London Parties, the more Votes you will get in England, and therefore you will be in Power in the UK Government (as Evidenced with No Conservative party ever in power in the Celtic Nations Parliaments), as Labour introduced 'Devolution' in 1997 to the Celtic Nations, not for reasons of fairness, but to try to stop Scottish Independence, but most people in England see this as the slippery slope to Celtic Nations Independence, and taking Power away from England, made more prominent with different Covid 19 rules in each UK nation, and the consequent resurgence of Scottish independence, ironically enough sparked by Brexit, an English Nationalist approach to Europe. The irony is that the Labour party being more English Nationalistic will alienate the other "British" Celtic nations, as this is the impossibility of a UK Wide Political Party in a Britain that is made up of Three nations, as each nation has a different culture and history, and by being so called WOKE and catering for the Minority will by definition alienate the Majority. The Conservatives understand this all to well which why they always promote English Nationalism of course under the thin guise of Unionism, but in order to stay in power in the UK the Conservatives only have to please the 85% English population in the UK, the Celtic Nations are irrelevant as they do not have enough voters, which is why we have different parties in control in each UK Nation, but it only matters who gets the English vote in a UK wide referendum or election, as the UK Parliament in London Ultimately gets to control the Celtic Nations anyway above the Celtic Nations Devolution. Meaning that currently democratically there is no Incentive to do anything for the Celtic nations, only an Incentive to look after England to get their votes. However, who ever is voted in power in London, are the Same Type of People, with the Same Nationality and therefore Perspective, usually the same general background, and with the same general Objectives and Mind set, so will always be an English party as the UK Wide Government, either way, as Evidenced by the Fact that No other Nationality other than and English Party has ever been in Power in the UK Wide Government, that allows England to rule the Celtic nations centrally, and who can then promote their own nation's interests in the London Parliament, as Easily Evidenced by the Historical Overdevelopment of England as compared to the Historical Underdevelopment of the Celtic Nations. A 'One Nation' approach from London that is almost a form of 'Cultural, Political and Democratic Annexation' by London on the Celtic Nations. To Clarify, Labour is 'One UK Wide Party' with its Main Central Headquarters based in London and its overall Leader currently Keir Starmer (2021), it has regional Branches such as Welsh and Scottish Labour with Semi- Autonomy, with regional Headquarters in Cardiff or Edinburgh, but overall controlled from London as an English London party, 'One Party' as Easily Evidenced by the Fact that its registration with the Electoral Register is, and has only ever been, as 'One Party' only, with its Main Headquarters based in London (even though ironically the start of Labour was in 1900 with Keir Hardie, a Welshman, although this has been largely erased from history), I hope this has clarified this situation. Moreover, do Not Confuse 'Unionists' with 'English Nationalists', as they have Two Opposing Objectives, the one wants the Union to Thrive as a collective, and the other wants only England to Thrive by using the Union.
However, a system similar to the EU with a Veto Vote (but specific to the UK) which is in place in the EU to Level Out other Nation's Population Differences, so each Nation essentially counts as One Vote, and/or usually arrive at a Compromise even Before a Veto Vote is Formerly Lodged, provides a Bargaining Chip for the Celtic Nations on Selected UK Wide Policy that encourages initial Compromise, with threat of a Veto, and a 'Three out of Four Policy' in any Stale Mate. This may be a more Equal system in the UK to balance out the 85% population of the English, to make crucial UK Wide decisions more inclusive, and even save the Union. With the English Establishment stood on a Sinking ship, but having No Concept of the fact that it is Sinking (Delusional), meaning that soon it will be Sunk. An Equality Veto Vote System but Tailored to the UK, when regarding Only genuine Crucial Selected UK Wide Concerns that will have to be Detailed between the UK Nations but set in Stone, such as going to War, or on some Foreign Policy, for Example. Then on other UK Wide decisions each UK Nation can Enact a Veto Vote on Certain Subjects that are Important to them (a set amount a year, maybe Two, otherwise it will be enacted all the time), and if agreed by Three of the Four Nations can be Veto Voted on, with the Opportunity to Veto a UK Wide Proposal until a Compromise is agreed (with a Three out of Four Majority in an ongoing Stale Mate), for Example (with English MP's Voting on England's Position to Acknowledge all of England's Regions, and at the same time the Devolved Celtic Administrations Voting on their Position). Keeping the UK Parliament Honest as they know that what ever UK Wide decisions they make can be challenged, resulting in fairer initial decision making for all the UK Nations as a Whole. Surely for London better to have a Union with an Option of a Veto Vote on some UK Wide Decisions, than to have No Union at all?! To add more detail, as people may well then say what is the point of the UK Parliament system then, as clearly if a Veto Vote is needed it is unfair, but their has to be an acknowledgement that 85% of the UK population is English, with UK Sovereignty based in the UK Parliament, so they get to make the UK Laws and Proposals but can be counter balanced by a Celtic Nation Veto Vote as and when in any one year. This Celtic Nations Veto Vote ability has its main power in the Threat of using it, meaning that if the majority of the 533 English MPs put forward a UK Law or proposal, even before the proposal is set they will be acutely aware that it could be Vetoed meaning fairer Legislation from the outset.How would UK Parliament know that a Celtic Nation maybe considering a Veto Vote? Replace the secretary of state for Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland, by the leader of the sitting UK government represented directly in the Welsh Senedd and Scottish Parliament in Holyrood (Welsh Conservative or Labour for Example in Britain, depending on who is in power in the UK Government at the time, and a selected person in Northern Ireland, selected by their parliament), so have a Direct Line inside each Celtic parliament within any UK cabinet, as and when required. Why continue with Celtic MPs in the UK parliament? Well they can still provide a voice directly in the UK parliament for Welsh or Scottish constituents. Please do not waste the genius I am not doing this for fun I am doing it to save the Union if it is at all possible, and in doing so making it fairer and more prosperous for all UK Nations, failing that clearly Independence is then the only viable option. To Clarify the UK Nations Share UK Sovereignty as a UK Sovereign State.
To Clarify, their are Two Different overall Meanings, Aims and Objectives of Nationalism within Britain, there is a Minority Celtic Nationalism looking for Greater Equality to Level Up, and failing that Independence, and a Majority English Nationalism seeking to Maintain long standing Inequalities but under the Guise of Unionism, although a genuine Unionist would Actively seek Equality and Fairness among UK Nations not work against it for the benefit of their own UK Nation, the definition of Nationalism, and of course, if as London say, Britain is One Nation then there could be no Nationalism within Britain as there is said to be No different Nations with Britishness, yet Nationalism is said by London to be the greatest threat to the UK Union, who never mention English Nationalism the greatest threat of all as they have the most Power and Influence to Favour their Own UK Nation to the detriment of the Celtic Nations, spreading Discontent and Nationalism among the Celtic Nations, the only way to prevent Celtic Nationalism is to Rule with Fairness?
However, this 'One Nationality Theory' is Evidenced by the Fact that No Welsh, Scottish or Northern Ireland political party runs for Election in England (or is Allowed), that could break up the London English Monopoly, keeping a Welsh or Scottish perspective out of the Central 'Island of Britain' Power Structure, further Easy Evidence of the same apparent 'Colonial Mind set' is the constant English Cross Party Support, through the ages, by all the main London based English Political Parties against Scottish or Welsh Independence. Although, all the London based parties run for UK Wide Election not only in England, but in "Britain" as a whole, within Wales and Scotland as well, English Political Parties in Wales and Scotland who are controlled centrally from their London base, and who influence the Candidates and Selection Process, so Choosing people with their Same Mind set and Beliefs but within Wales and Scotland. Who then also Interfere in Welsh and Scottish politics (on the 'Island of Britain') in their own National Interests by also running for Local Elections as Members of the Welsh or Scottish parliaments Internally, primarily relying on England's vast UK Majority Population (England 55 million, Wales 3 & Scotland 5 million populations) with many English people living in Wales and Scotland, with even smaller English parties such as UKIP, and Abolish the Welsh and Scottish Parliament Parties, to give all power back to London, and trying to Block any Celtic Independence Referendums by Preventing a Majority Vote in any Celtic Nations Parliament (also using Labour and Conservatives), as Simple Examples. Avenues that the Scottish and Welsh could not do in London because they are Only getting Seats in only Wales or Scotland, so not allowing them enough MP's to make any difference in any UK London Parliamentary Vote. As the possibility of Welsh and Scottish interests with Greater Representation (with enough UK Wide MP's) going up more equally against England's interests will have to result in a Compromise Fair for all the UK Nations, and save the Union of the United Kingdom, or London could just introduce a UK Nations Veto Vote to balance out populations as in the EU. As Even Wales and Scotland as fellow Celtic Nations would not have the Brass Neck to run for Election in each others Country, as it would be seen as stepping on each others toes, and interfering with their internal Politics. To Clarify, Neil Kinnock (Welsh, with a Broad Welsh Accent) was Not voted as Prime minister in 1987 and 1992, labelled as a 'Welsh Windbag', and Gordon Brown (Scottish, with a Broad Scottish Accent) became leader of Labour automatically in 2007 only because Tony Blair (who had an English Accent and went to Oxford university, so you would not know he was actually born in Edinburgh) had left, and at the Earliest Opportunity (2010 UK Wide Election) was Voted Out by the Majority English Population (coincidently, the same fate as Alex Douglas-Home in 1964 after being given the prime minister title because of the retirement of Englishman Harold Macmillan in 1963, Douglas-Home was the shortest ever serving prime minister), yet Tony Blair and Labour had been in power for three consecutive terms previous the appointment of Gordon Brown. To clarify, the UK has never had an Obviously Welsh or Scottish Elected Prime minister since well before the second world war, and LLoyd George was born in Manchester, with Gladstone born in Liverpool, England, educated at Eton and Oxford. Furthermore, do not assume that just because someone may have been initially born in Wales or Scotland that they all have a vested interest in Wales or Scotland as Nations above their own Political Ambition and Career in the UK, which can only be realistically achieved through London, I think we are all familiar with the American term of an 'Uncle Tom'.
However, the idea that a Welsh or Scottish Political Party would run for Election in England to gain enough Seats to properly represent Wales and Scotland in the UK (English) Parliament (in either 'Regional English Elections' or 'UK Wide Elections') would be considered Laughable by the English population, politicians and London British Media, as they would see just their Celtic 'Nationality' First and Foremost, regardless of any Political Ability or Manifesto, and Focus on just the base Nationality of the Party, even if an English person stood as one of their Candidates. As London would argue that a Welsh or Scottish based party would come with a natural Bias in Favour of Wales or Scotland, as different People and Countries, with different Histories, Needs, Aims and Objectives, with the possibility of going against England's overall interests, or even the interests of that English constituency (although over time it would become Normal, as with English political parties historically running for Regional and National Elections in Wales and Scotland, just Brand them as "British" not Welsh and Scottish political parties). Indeed, if the idea of an English political party running for Election in Wales or Scotland was to be introduced Now as a New idea, the idea would also be met with the same argument of Unfair Bias towards England or that Nation's interests, from Wales and Scotland. As it seems that when an English party runs for Election in Wales or Scotland they are Branded as "British" Not English, to divert attention away from the fact that they are representing a different Nation, and ultimately controlled from London, through selection and direction, with their main interests obviously prioritised in London and England (as Evidenced with the Historical Underdevelopment of Wales and Scotland when Compared to England). The Dictionary definition of 'Discrimination' is not treating others as you would treat yourself, the Oxford English Definition of 'Discrimination' is, 'the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, sex, or disability'.
To Clarify, England only have 'Supranational' status with Sovereignty because of the Act of Union in 1707, which was manipulated by London at a time when the Celtic nations had already been Subdued (Three Kingdom 'Wars' 1651, by England's Oliver Cromwell, Wales had already been Annexed 1542, the Laws of Wales Act 1542 that still keeps Wales effectively undemocratically Annexed regardless), as No Nation would give up their Sovereignty (Independence) Voluntarily unless Coerced, as Evidenced in the UK by the 'Wars' to Subdue the Celtic nations in the first place, and Resistance to English Occupation. If you were wondering, when a Nation had been Annexed Previous to the UN Laws in 1945 it is still under the new UN Law to prevent Annexation, for Example, Hawaii Annexed by the USA in 1898 but allowed a Referendum in 1959 because of the UN Laws Banning continued Annexation and so preventing Self-determination. Just to Assess this much used London term of 'Sovereignty'. Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), who was a prominent thinker in the time of the Act of Union 1707 (Largely ignoring John Locke), states that when people mutually covenant each to the others to obey a common authority, they have established what Hobbes calls “sovereignty by institution”. When, threatened by a conqueror, they covenant for protection by promising obedience, they have established “sovereignty by acquisition”, as in the Act of Union in 1707 (with the Underlying Threat of Force, Bribes through Peerages & Money, also Coerced with the 'Alien Act 1705' by London that placed an Embargo on Scottish trade) and London Colonialism in General, Hobbes (an Oxford Graduate) appears to Validate Both? However, Hobbes (an English Royalist so had a vested interest in claiming other peoples Lands with or without collective unimpeded Consent) believed that 'Either Way' Overall Consent was Tacitly given (Implied & Accepted). Indeed, if any Conquered Lands already had Laws and Sovereignty in place to Control the Masses against their Natural Instincts, another one would not have been necessary. Rousseau (1712-1778) later argues that the 'Collective People are Sovereign' through their general will, this is the version that commands legitimacy most commonly in the world today, but in the UK this must mean all UK Nationalities not just the Majority Nationality. As there is the possibility of the 'Stability of Sovereignty' but which can then be handed to each Nation state in the UK, to counter basic instinctive human self-interests of One Nation state over another, using Independence, as it seems better to be ruled by your own Nationality than by someone else's Nationality, as people's self-interests nature will still exist, but at least you eradicate the self-interests of bias based on UK Nationality that has Plagued the UK for Centuries? To further Clarify, the UK is Not a Sovereign 'Nation' State, as in Nation, it is a 'Sovereign State' with Four Different Nationalities, so is just politically a 'Sovereign State', with Sovereignty Located in London, but is not one Nation, Country or Nationality. The Sewel Convention, which does allow for a questioning of decisions, and which tries to Imply that Consent is Required from the Devolved Nations, although it also has a clause stating, that they would "Normally" want consent, an Opt Out clause, but the UK government can still do what they want anyway because of Sovereignty, remembering that the UK (English) Parliament has 533 English Representative MP's out of 650. In addition, it is always quite Ironic when London keep talking about the Power of their Sovereignty in England that allows them the Authority over the Celtic Nations, but when it comes time for Accountability, then all of a Sudden they are "British"? To Clarify, Wales has always been a Nation and Country Conquered through Threat and Force, and also Not a State, Province or Region, with a Distinct English and Welsh border, Offa's Dyke built in 785 AD Defining the Two Nations Territorial Boundaries, with Hadrian's Wall to the North Defining Scotland from England.
Moreover, if you are reading this in England and say that as the 85% majority of the UK we should control the minority 15% Celtic nations, and say that otherwise there maybe occasions where the tail is wagging the dog, then by definition the the United Kingdom is over already, but at least allow the Celtic nations the option of an independence referendum without all the hassle and interference. Just to Clarify, Independence in Wales will only come to the fore when Scotland gain independence, as independence will then become real and tangible. As it might just be that any nation will by definition always favour their own, a natural human instinct, regardless of which nation maybe in power in the UK, but in a union of four nations this becomes a problem that maybe just cannot be overcome? Such is the almost unique situation of having four internationally recognised historical nations trying to be combined into one, but I guess there is no harm in trying and seeing if the UK can be adapted into the future, but quite clearly time is running out. Particularly pertinent In a time when London have already Isolated themselves from Europe (Brexit), and seem destined to Isolate themselves within the UK as well. Clearly the attitude from London is Toxic and Divisive trying to hold onto a Colonial past and attitude won and developed in a time when Force and Coercion was acceptable, that is just not suitable in the modern era with international laws, the internet making it more difficult to hide injustice, and with more powerful nations in the world, at what point do you admit this and readjust yourselves to fit into the modern world? 'Those who refuse to change become a relic of the past'(Paul TP Wong).
The UK Nation's Ethnicities and identities form the links in the chain of the UK as a whole, including celebrating what it is to be English, theses identities combine then to form strong links in the chain of a UK wide identity, trying to ignore the different core Nationalities and Ethnicities of the UK weakens the links in the chain, and forms an identity based on a Singular Nation and Ethnicity as a whole that does Not Exist once you lightly scratch the surface, making it ultimately worthless. As constantly telling someone that they are "British" forget about your own nationality and ethnicity, as if it is something to be hidden and ashamed of, means nothing when that person then asks, well what is the definition of "Britishness", where is this Nation, what is it's core Ethnicity, and you have no answer. As the Identities of the Four Nations of the UK is Tangible and is Real, as compared to an Identity of Britishness that has no basis in reality, either Culturally or as a Nationality, mainly because of the Different Histories and Context of the Four UK Nations. I understand that London want to hide the way that they oppressed the Celtic nations to become part of the UK in the first place, but this needs to be embraced, acknowledged and discussed openly, not hidden, in order to then to move onto a new future given the circumstances we are in at this time in history, otherwise these truths, that are easily accessible on the internet these days, will just fester and rot the union from the inside out. It's like having an coercive partner in a controlling relationship, but the perpetrator refuses to talk about any coercion, this then totally invalidates the exploited person's experience, almost 'Gas Lighting' them, to the point that they will then just move on and live a separate life, knowing that it cannot be resolved.
Make No Mistake, Democracy is a good thing, and must be the best way to structure a society, but it must be structured in a manner that, as much a possible, can represent all people, not just engineered (as in the UK's version) to benefit the powerful overwhelming 85% largest Majority nation, particularly given the somewhat acrimonious relationship between England and the Celtic nations since the official formation of the United Kingdom in 1707 (and even well before this date). As there appears to be an apparent ongoing Historic Nasty Attitude towards Wales (being called a 'Sheep Shagger' for example, is not a term of Endearment) that seems quite 'Bizarre' when you take into Consideration that Wales is Part of the British Isles (although Forced through Annexation in 1542 without Consent) and has 'Served' in many Wars in England's name throughout the Centuries, although Wales and Scotland as Owned Lands, had No Choice and were taken into the many Wars by London, as with the Republic of Ireland in the Second World War who were by that time Independent so were able to decide to be neutral and not to participate. However, Wales was the 'First Nation' to be 'Colonised' by England in England's Virgining Imperial Period, due to their 'Close Geography' (Historically the Closest Proximity Nation to the Historical Beating Heart of England, London) and may well eventually be the very 'Last to be able to Leave for the Same Reason'? Indeed it is widely accepted that the Early Years Colonisation by England of the Celtic Home Nations in the UK set the Blueprint for their subsequent World Wide "British" (English) Colonial Empire. Although through the Centuries Wales (& Scotland) have always Managed to Maintain their Own Unique Separate Core Identity and Language, and have always Resisted becoming Anglasized (English), so always Remained the 'Other', which might explain the apparent Historic & Ongoing Hostile attitude towards them to this Day?... So there was always an apparent element of Coercion involved in this Uneasy Alliance by Forcing previously Conquered and Subdued Lands (through a Mismatch of Numbers and Resources) to 'Fight and Serve' on your side (much like with Scotland, Ireland and many Common Wealth Countries including India, throughout the Centuries in many Wars and Conflicts). Moreover, It appears 'Self-Evident' that Wales is Still Fundamentally an Ongoing Colony of England to this day as there has never been an 'Official Democratic End Date' (the Reason being appears to be that Colonialism still Continues for Wales?), which seems to account for Wales almost being Caught in a Continuous 'Historic Time Warp' where most other Previously Colonised Lands (Outside of the UK) around the World have Moved Onto 'Post Colonialism', but Wales Continue to Remain in this Historical Restricted Ongoing Colonial State, (an obvious ongoing Out Dated Colonial 'Domination' of Wales as Opposed to a Modern 'Partnership of Equals' within the Union of the United Kingdom) even though the British ('English') Empire allegedly Ended Decades Ago??... Indeed, if this Association were a Marriage Between Two Individuals it would Easily be Defined as an Abusive Relationship!... This Ongoing Colonial Domination was further Evidenced recently (regarding Scotland a Country in a Similar Historic Circumstance to Wales within Britain) in June 2018 by David Mundell the UK Governments London Based Conservative Party's Scottish Secretary of State, when he 'Clarified' in 'No Uncertain Terms', that 'Scotland Are Part of the UK, But 'Not' Partners'!!... This Ongoing 'Systemic Colonial State' seems to Dictate How Wales is historically 'Perceived' and 'Treated' to this Day by the UK Dominant Central London English Establishment (Central UK Government, Structures & Media) apparently seen more of a 'Subordinate' than an 'Equal' within the United Kingdom? This Ongoing Colonialist 'Attitude' appears to be Historically handed down through the London English Establishment's Ancestral Generations in te Corridors of Power in London, and Further Reinforced and Instilled in Traditional English Private Schools & Elite Higher Educational Environments.
Indeed, when it comes to identifying systemic manipulation of any sort regarding any subject matter, if you want to identify the original source, the architect, then start your investigation asking one Question, once this one Question can be answered, nine times out of the ten, working backwards from there, the rest will tend to naturally fall into to place, the miracle question is simply 'Who does it Benefit'? So for example, in the case of the UK Wide democratic voting system, or not implementing a UK Nations Equal Veto Vote System on matters that impact the whole of the UK (similar to the EU for example), given that 533 UK Parliament MP's out of 650 MP's (soon to 543 English MP's from 2023, 8 taken from Wales and 2 from Scotland, again with out their Consent or Consultation, Click for Link) represent English constituencies in a Majority vote their interest's will always be paramount, Who does it Benefit? As some say London adding 10 MP's to English representatives is to prevent the DUP having any more potential UK power as in 2017 (Hung Parliament), when they had the UK Government 'over a barrel' with their 10 MP's, coincidentally the exact same amount added to English representatives by London, therefore serving to cancel out any future DUP numbers in the UK Parliament, that would prevent this from ever happening again. As the 10 new MP's would be diluted into English parties as a counter balance therefore neutralising the 10 MP's of the DUP (the most they have ever had), and also in autonomously taking 8 off Wales and 2 off Scotland to create these extra 10 MP's that then further minimises the voting capacity of these nations within the UK Parliament, as London could not take them directly off Northern Ireland as that would be too obvious, but would ultimately assist any UK Government when voting in the UK Parliament, be they Labour or Conservative in the future (although London say it is because of population growth)? Again always look at ultimately 'who it Benefits' and 'who has the Power to make the decision', looking past the usual proposed excuses or random spin. Indeed, I could be wrong, but common sense dictates that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is usually a duck, especially when you have seen the same duck so many times before. Of course it is easy then to say that Democracy is not perfect, and some people will inevitably lose out, which could be seen as a reasonable suggestion, but Only if there is a Genuine Attempt to try to be Fair, however to Actively Manipulate and Rig the UK Democratic System so it Favours the Majority Ethnicity and Country Above all others within the UK (when a 'Veto Vote' system between the UK Nations could easily be introduced to balance out population anomalies) is a Different Scenario Altogether. Even the UK Parliament's 'Common's Rulebook' (Standing Orders) means that the ruling UK Government of the day (which is always a London based Party) can Dictate what is being allowed to be Debated in the UK Parliament.
Indeed, many English Nationalist's will try to define themselves as British Nationalist's (even though Britain does not exist as a Singular Nation) in order to keep control of England, but more crucially control over the Celtic Nations as well, as having a distinct recognised separate English parliament (which obviously already exists in London due to the number disparities, these Number Disparities that Favour England did Not happen by Accident) means they risk losing overall control of the Celtic Nations, as UK policy will no longer be solely centralised into London, because all UK Nations will then be seen as separate and distinct from each other, you cannot have a separate and distinct English parliament ruling policy over Scottish policy for example, as they will be officially seen as separate entities, so keeping the English parliament Labelled as the UK parliament, which is the current state of affairs, allows London to rule more easily over the Celtic nations as well, under the Guise of a UK Parliament, as essentially London see the Celtic Nations as just Regions of England, so within the Nation and Country of England. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a sovereign state, with Sovereignty based in London, composed of four constituent countries that extends its sovereignty over a number of associated territories. Strictly speaking, a country is not necessarily the same thing as a sovereign state, they are academically Distinct from each other, as opposed to being used as Generalised and Interchangeable terms, a Confusion perpetuated from London, as some sovereign states (including the UK) that maybe defined as countries are actually subdivisions of a sovereign “composite kingdom", the Kingdom of the United Kingdom.
To Clarify, currently, as the 'UK London Parliament' has '543' English Members of Parliament (MP's) Allocated Representing English Constituencies (10 further MP's allocated by London to England in 2021), '57' Scottish MP's Allocated (with some Labour or Conservative [& other smaller English parties] MP's with their Parties & Leaders Based in London), Wales '32' MP's Allocated (most are Labour or Conservative [& other smaller English Parties] MP's with their Parties & Leaders Based in London) and Northern Ireland '18' MP's Allocated (many of which do Not go to the UK Parliament as Republican Irish). So in any UK Parliament Vote on Decisions Regarding the Whole of the UK (with '543' English MP's Allocated out of a Total of '650' Allocated UK MP's, with the other '107' UK MP's also Spread out between the three other Celtic Nations), You do the Maths!!... So Ultimately Effectively making the 'UK Parliament' an 'English Parliament' in All But Name, with 'UK Wide Decisions' Ultimately made by the Overwhelming 'Majority Vote' London Based 'English Establishment Representatives' in the UK (English) Parliament, who then decide UK Law and Policy, as well as the UK's Foreign Policy (going to War), effectively Deleting any Celtic Nations input.This Fact Acknowledged and Confirmed by Boris Johnson (Current Prime Minster 2020) in 2019 when he said, “I’m not convinced there is a case for an England-only parliament,” he said. “We have an England-only parliament. It’s in Westminster. It’s been there for a long time. I’m not disposed to create another parliament.” (Click for Link). Please excuse the fact that Boris Johnson's Documented Words had to be reported in one of the only Newspapers (which is only regional) in the UK that support independence for any Celtic Nation (owned by Newsquest, who are owned by American company Gannett and New Media outside of London influence). However, this was the Only Media Outlet in the UK that I could find the Direct Quote, which also appears to be further Direct Evidence of the ultimate Power and Influence of the London UK Wide Mainstream Media as a Whole (a Collective) to be able to Control, Ignore and Bury, on Mass (a UK Wide Blanket Ban on Coverage) such an Important Admission, that has Finally Confirmed and Clarified the Historical and ongoing Unfairness of the UK Nations Constitutional Structure Created by London. So what is the Benefit to having a UK Parliament that is essentially an English Parliament in all but name, well you can Legislate and direct Policy and Law on your own Nation, but also then Control and Legislate Overall Policy and Law of the other UK Nations as well, in your Nations Favour.
Just to Clarify, if Wales do Choose the Action of Independence (although as an Annexed Nation Wales must have Permission form London even just to get a Democratic Vote, which in itself is Obviously Anti-Democratic, the Laws of Wales Act 1542 was quietly repealed by London in 1995 but still keeps Wales effectively undemocratically Annexed regardless) then the Same Tired Old Argument from London of Wales would be too Poor for Independence, is Easily 'Defeated' by the 'Real World' Example of the success of the Republic or Ireland, who are a fellow Celtic Nation, also the same general size and population, in the same geographic area of Europe, and also previously Owned by England (with Every Other Previous Colony of England also doing very well), which is Real Hard Tangible Evidence, Not just apparent Hypothetical Fear Mongering based on absolutely No Pre-established Evidence, apart from, since we have Owned you have always been Poor and Underdeveloped, with No Realistic Prospect of being anything other than that in the Future, which seems to only further Support the Independence narrative anyway. If London want to Save the Union they must put forward a Convincing argument, or Modernise with New Ideas, unless of course a Convincing argument does not currently exist, or, of course they could just simply Block an Independence Referendum, but which is clearly Unsustainable given International Laws on Colonialism. The term self-determination has come to mean the free choice of one's own acts without external compulsion. Put Simply, you Cannot call yourself a Democrat in a Liberal Democracy but then choose to Ignore or Deny Democratic Consent to Wales, as that would Obviously make you a Hypocrite.
Indeed, a Legally Binding Fixed Term Independence Referendum for the Minority Celtic Nations Every 20 years (set in Motion Within the Legislation with an Immediate Independence Referendum) set in Law that Cannot be Changed (with the Involvement of the UN as an Unbiased Mediator to prevent any alterations, as we know from the Internal Markets Bill 2020 that London are prepared to break agreements), would confirm Consent for each new Generation, and will help settle any Independence calls, as there will always be the option to vote within any 20 year time period (generation), you must Earn the Consent of the Celtic Nations you Cannot just take it, and Keep it, it must be Tested at Regular Intervals. This Option Providing a Direction for Wales through Consent, moving away from a Purgatory state, where London would have to Develop and Respect Wales in order for them to Continue to Vote to remain in the Union of the UK, ideally incorporating a Veto Vote system between the Four UK Nations, to Promote a Unionist agenda to assist in a Unionist Vote. This approach would be using Democracy to keep London Honest, much like Fix Term Governments that have Elections every four years, that can be voted out to be replaced with another Government, if deemed as Not fit for purpose, which will provide Motivation for London to Develop the Celtic Nations as they can then be held accountable at regular Intervals, and confirm a Modern ongoing up to date Consent. As when people think that they are not being held against their will, they are more relaxed about the subject of Independence, especially when they know that there is a set date to vote again, as Independence for the Celtic Nations under the current format, and with the Internet to Highlight Inequality, is pretty much guaranteed anyway in the coming years. It is like when a bird is locked in a cage for years when eventually the door is open it looks to permanently escape, but if the cage door is left open, the bird is more likely to go out briefly to explore their environment out of curiosity, but then always come back home again.
It does appear Important here to Explain the Comparative Populations of the English as Contrasted against the Welsh Population within the UK, in order to Provide an Understanding of the Differing 'Social' and 'Democratic' 'Power Bases'. The Current Population of Wales is estimated at 3 Million People (approx 5% of the British Population) a 'Minority', with the English Establishment still Possessing the Capacity to Limit and Restrain Powers in the Welsh National Assembly (Welsh Government), along with 'No' National Mainstream UK Wide Welsh Based Media (Welsh Owned or Independently Edited, Produced or Directed Media, Creating New Shows & Dramas from Wales to Provide a 'Human Face' of Welsh people. To Clarify, if a Film is made in Wales unless it is actually about Wales, the backdrop could be anywhere) Television Channel or any Other National Mainstream Media Outlets (such as a National Mainstream UK Wide Newspaper for example) that are both Historically and Continuously 'Not Allowed' in Wales by the Central London English Establishment Authorities. How can you possibly Explore Ideas or Highlight Inequality or Injustice Without the Ability to Publicly Communicate or Discuss these possible Inequalities or Alternative Ideas and Perspectives Publicly without a Fully Functioning Independent Media? (once again Thank God for the Internet!). In Contrast the Current English Population is 55 Million People (out of the Entire UK Wide Population of 66 Million People, 'ONS 2016') which is approximately 85% of the Entire potential British (UK) Voting Population (the Vast 'Majority') so in any Amalgamated Combined 'UK Wide' Supposed Democratic General Vote, Obviously 'You Do The Maths'!.. Moreover, as in any Amalgamated Vote UK Wide Obviously England's view will be the only view recognised as the Overwhelming 85% Majority population. That's Why there are different Political Parties who Win Elections in the separate UK Nations, but only the Political Party that Wins in England Controls the Whole of the UK, Mathematically appearing to make the Votes Cast in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland largely Irrelevant. Indeed, in Wales (Labour Party), Scotland (SNP) and Northern Ireland (DUP) they have all Voted for Different Government parties through their individual Democracy, but as England are the vast 85% Majority essentially who ever England votes for in Westminster (currently the Conservative Party) then rules the whole of the UK, with the main decision making powers, making the so called Democratic Votes in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland largely 'Irrelevant'. Certainly on the UK Wide Stage, regarding the Direction of the UK, because London have 'Sovereignty' to Control the Whole of the UK, which also means they can Negotiate Internationally on the Celtic Nations behalf (Trade Deals and Brexit for Example), with NO Celtic Nations Representation in the Room. So, apparently just Democratic Window Dressing, to look like a Democracy from the Outside, as Devolved Nations have very Specific and Limited Powers that can be Over Ruled from London anyway (Sewel Convention 1998, because of London 'Sovereignty'), which will only ever be a London Based Political Party in UK Wide Control in London from the Main Two (Labour or Conservative), due to the 'First Past the Post System' in UK wide voting (Not 'Proportional Representation', which is in place in all the UK Celtic Nations, but Not for UK Wide Elections as 'First Past the Post' Favours the Majority, as Smaller Parties could then have some Power and Influence on Decision making), and with NO Celtic Nations Political Parties running for Election in England (with English Based Parties always Historically Running for Election in Wales and Scotland, which allows them to Interfere in Welsh and Scottish politics in their own National Interests, UKIP, and Abolish the Welsh and Scottish Parliament Parties, to give all power back to London, and trying to Block any Celtic Independence Referendums by Preventing a Majority Vote in any Celtic Nations Parliament, as Simple Examples), as England has by far, the most 'Constituency Seat Numbers' available to be able to form a UK Wide Government, making UK Democracy a Two party State, of the 'Same Type of People', which is essentially 'One Party', but Split into Two.The UK Voting System in 'Football' Terms, is like having a 'First Team' and 'Reserve Team', both from the Same Club, Predominantly the Same Type of People (Nationality, Class and Ethnicity), and with the Same Overall Basic Interests (England's), with NO possibility of 'Relegation', or any Promotion for other Teams.
The UK has quite a Unique situation in the World where by 'Four Internationally Recognised Countries' have been Initially Historically Forcibly Combined into One Land mass of Britain (Historical Ongoing Colonialism). As a Consequence Common Sense seems to suggest that the UK Needs a 'Unique Modern System of Democracy' (See 'Nation Specific Criteria' towards the bottom of the page under 'What is Britishness' heading above) to Provide an Equal Voice for All the Distinct Internationally Recognised Nations within it's Whole Collective. So England Historically Colonising Smaller Nations around them by Force (in Previous Centuries) then Renaming that Group of Four Geographically Close Nations the UK or Britain (Whilst Still keeping their Own Primary National Identity of England, with London as the Central Hub) as one so called Homogeneous Group (even though they have different Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Ethnicities, Histories, Cultures & even Initially before Colonialism different Languages), appears to Historically Automatically Ensure that in a so called UK Wide "Democratic Vote" (Brexit as an Example in 2016) because of the 'Comparable Size' of their Smaller Colony Nations Populations Compared to theirs, in a UK Amalgamated Democratic Vote (which the London UK Government has the Power to Impose, Alter or Influence) England's overall views will always Prevail. Which almost seems to be Using an Imposed System of Democracy as a Weapon to Retain Colonies in the Modern Era?!. As Wales (& Scotland) are the potential 'Competitor's on their Doorstep', so need controlling, by apparently using a structured form of Democracy that Favours the Vast 85% Majority Anglo-Saxon group. In addition, the Fact that the 'Bank of England' is 'Not' called the 'Bank of Britain' seems to provide an Easy Insight into Who gets to Decide all UK Wide Funding and Ultimately who Controls all the UK Nations Economically as well? This Power is Commonly referred to as 'The Power of the Purse', which is the ability of One Group to Manipulate Another Group by Withholding, Limiting or Denying Funding, or placing Stipulations on Funding. As 'Concentration of Wealth Equals Concentration of Power'...
Moreover, for those who say that 'Federalism' maybe the answer to the power imbalance in the UK between the Four Nations, as England's Population is 85% of the UK Population, in an Amalgamated Combined UK Vote England's Voice will still be Paramount, even if the UK is split into more Equal Population Territories England's Voice will also be Paramount in an Overall Vote anyway. However, this is all conjecture and speculation as the 'Motivation' to want to share power (which hasn't existed for the last 300 years or more) must be there in the first place from London, who are Not willing to give up their historical 'Central Power' to Influence on daily affairs, particularly in regard to Restrictions on Finance and Media?Although the same 'Veto Vote and/or Majority Vote System' as in the EU does provide this Share of Power and seems the only way of Balancing out England's Population, Size, Power Imbalance, Different Ethnicity, Identity, Characteristic's and History, within a some what unique scenario in the UK of Four Internationally Recognised Nations within One Union, similar to the larger scale version of 27 Internationally Recognised Nations in the EU (European Union)? Actually the Sewell Convention 1998, ironically enough, essentially gives the UK (English) parliament a Veto over any devolved nations decisions, without any other Celtic nations being able to Veto any UK decisions, so in essence England already have a Veto over the Celtic nations, but it needs to be available to every UK nation regarding UK wide decisions, in the UK (English) Parliament to provide Fairness and some Parity of Power, just giving yourself a Veto Vote is obviously very Unfair. Federalism can work in places like the USA and Australia as they see themselves as essentially ultimately, One Nation, One Nationality, One Country, with One Over Riding Base National Identity, that of Australian or American (could be Ethically African American or Italian American, but always essentially American as a Whole, for example) most people in Wales describe their National Identity as Welsh Not British, the same with most Scottish people. Moreover, in the USA or Australia No One Vast Majority State or Territory has ever been the overall Historical Master of the Rest through prolonged Subjugation or Force (with 85% of the Whole Population, and a Different Anglo-Saxon Ethnicity to the Minority Celtic Ethnicity), and have Not had a History of Colonialism within their Union of States or Territories trying to Force Already 'Fully Formed Nations' into one Nation or National Identity, whilst still being made up of Four Individually Recognised Nations with Separate International Sporting Teams, National Anthems, Flags, Borders, Histories and Cultures. The UK is, and Never has been One Homogeneous Group, which is why even after Centuries of Violence, Force and Subjugation by the Vast (85%) Majority English Nation, the UK is Still made of Four Distinct Internationally Recognised Nations with their own Unique Identities to this day, even after Centuries of Systematic Subjugation from London. Although, it must be said that a Federal System for Wales would be infinitely better than its current Purgatory position, being half a Nation, Half not a Nation, regards powers, media and crucial economic Levers.
Furthermore when regarding apparent Democracy Internally 'Within' Wales (outside of the UK Wide Elections that are Counted as a Whole). In June 2014 a 'Telegraph' National Newspaper Article by John Bingham Pointed Towards a Migrant Concern in Wales by Introducing the Article Headed, ‘The Welsh Could Become a Minority in Wales as English Set their Sights West’. In this Article the author Highlighted that in 2011 it was Estimated that '22%' (Office for National Statistics 'ONS' 2011, that takes place every 10 years) of the Population Residing in Wales can be Identified as 'English' and rising (which is Six Hundred and Sixty Thousand People (660,000) Potential Voters, out of the Entire Welsh Population of 3 Million), with only '3%' of England's whole population being from the other three Celtic UK Home Nation's 'Combined'. Many of these English Incomers are said to be Predominantly of Adult Voting Age. So the 'Real Terms Impact' of this '22%' of Migrants on the actual Voting Pool and therefore 'Democracy' in Wales, may have a Further (On Top of being Out Numbered in a UK Wide Amalgamated Vote) Significant Negative Undemocratic Impact (in Representing Indigenous Welsh Peoples Views) when Votes are cast Within Wales Internally for all Welsh Elections or Referendums (See 'Nation Specific Criteria' towards the bottom of the page under the 'What is Britishness?' heading)?
The Article goes onto suggest that by the mid 2080’s Welsh People will be a Minority in Wales, as a result of their Nations Geographical Closeness to England, England's Disproportionately Large Population, and the Fluid Movement of People from England to Wales on the same Landmass. Where as a Consequence of Historical Under Funding and Under Development in Wales, Space and Land appears Relatively Abundant, along with the Lure of More Affordable and Substantial Properties (Due to Ongoing Welsh Poverty and Under Development). Leading to many English people Retiring in Wales, but also many still working in England but Residing (so eligible to vote in Wales on Welsh issues) and then Commuting from Wales. again See, 'Nation Specific Criteria' under the 'What is Britishness?' heading above, for a possible Solution. To Clarify, the Oxford English Definition of a 'Migrant' is, 'a Person who Moves from One Place to Another, Especially to Find Work or Better Living Conditions'. To put this '22%' into Perspective, '22%' of England's Population of '55 Million' would be over '12 Million' Potential Voters. Imagine the Public Outcry in England (through their Media), due to a perception of an 'Unfair Disproportionate Democratic Influence' within England's Democratic System!... (again, in Contrast All of the Celtic Nations people 'Combined' only make up '3%' of England's entire population)? This Disproportionately Large English contingent in Wales (the Largest Contingent of English people in any Celtic Nation, mainly due to Geography, and as suggested by Professor Anand Menon in his 'Brexit and Public Opinion' Paper p23 in 2019, may be more likely to Vote Leave in a Brexit Referendum, for example?) appears to Explain the 'Welsh Brexit Vote Anomaly'? The 'Anomaly' Being that Wales gets the most EU (European Union) Funding out of all the UK Nations because of their Internationally Recognised European Poverty, yet the people Residing in Wales Narrowly Voted (52% to 48% Leave) in the Bexit Vote of 2016 to Leave Europe?? (See 'Wales and Brexit' Heading above). To Clarify, the large proportion of English people in Wales, mainly retired, led to Wales as a Nation being seen as voting to Leave the EU Click for Link.
However, the Biggest Concern and therefore the 'Most Crucial' in 'Rationalising and Justifying' this Focus on 'Specifically the English Incomer Voting Population' in Wales, is that "Wales is Owned by England"(Actually, certain restrictions on other resident Nationals voting in a different Nation's elections is not uncommon it happens all across Europe, even currently in the UK for most other EU Nationals). Indeed, providing Identification (that can clarify Nationality, under the proposed 'Nations Specific Criteria') at polling stations already happens world wide in places such as Canada and France, and even already exists in the UK with Northern Ireland, with No Problems what so ever). This 'Ownership' Fact appears to possibly provide a Different View of Wales by English People Living in Wales than Indigenous Welsh People or that of 'Any other overseas Migrant or Celtic Nations Citizens' who may Reside in Wales (Who also Do Not Present as 'ALL ONE SPECIFIC GROUP' (Anglo-Saxon Race) within an Overwhelming Majority UK Population Mass)? As Overseas Migrants may be More Likely to present with a 'Neutral Unbiased View' on England and Wales, as they may have Heard of these Nations but are more likely to have No Actual Direct Experience of them Personally? (So Essentially are more likely to 'Not have any Skin in the Game' so to Speak, No 'Conflict of Interests'). To Clarify, Due to an apparent Natural Attachment to their Birth Country (A Firm Identity Psychologically Proven to be Developed Largely in a Person's Early 'CHILDHOOD', as asserted by the Centre for the Developing Child, Harvard University 2009), 'Who Still Historically Own Wales as a Nation'. So English People who Reside in Wales might be More Inclined to View Wales as 'Theirs', the 'Historical Property of England', their 'Principality' (that Would Make Perfect Obvious Sense as the English Do Actually Own Wales, as Wales was Annexed by England in 1535 and Fully in 1545), which may be they Do Not Want to Lose in a Welsh Independence Referendum? So when Voting 'Inside' Wales, it may be in a Manner that Best Benefits their 'Own Nations Interests' (a Basic Human Instinct Click for Link '. Indeed, I am sure that if the Situation were in Reverse then many Welsh people would also be more Instinctively Inclined to Vote in Accordance with their own Nation's Interest's'?), by keeping Wales Under England's Control and Influence, which could be Further Achieved by Voting for a London Based Political Party in Wales? There appears to be 'No Other Country or Nation in the World', whose 'Immigrant Population' that Reside in Wales, who would Posses the Same Obvious ‘CONFLICT OF INTERESTS’?!.. Actually, the Brexit vote in 2016 Excluded many EU nationals Living in the UK at the time, because of concerns, there is also a further Precedent with the EVEL 2015 Law from London which also ensures Only English Votes on Only English Laws in the UK parliament, to Prevent Celtic Nations Interference. England own Wales, fully Annexed in 1542, a 'Conflict of Interests' when thinking in terms of the Validity of any possible future Independence Referendum Vote for Wales (or votes regarding only Wales). To Clarify, this is Not about Division (otherwise the same argument could apply to London's Exclusion of EU Nationals in Brexit Vote, and EVEL (English Votes for English Laws 2015) which is essentially preventing a certain Nationality from voting on another Nationality's specific concerns), however, in this case it is about Ensuring a Minority Voice is Not Diluted or Drowned out by the Overwhelming Majority, who also appear to have Easily Evidenced Conflicting Interests.
To Clarify, the Term 'CONFLICT OF INTERESTS', the 'OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY' Definition is Stated as: 'A SITUATION IN WHICH CONCERNS OR AIMS OF TWO DIFFERENT PARTIES ARE INCOMPATIBLE'. Furthermore, The 'CAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY' Definition Goes Onto State that a 'CONFLICT OF INTERESTS' is: 'A SITUATION IN WHICH SOMEONE'S PRIVATE INTERESTS ARE OPPOSED TO THAT PERSON'S RESPONSIBILITIES TO OTHER PEOPLE'.
So there is a Need (to Ensure possible Future UK Unity?) to Address the Historically Unbalanced Uneven UK Wide Population Voting System to Ensure Genuine Welsh Views are Represented, Not Simply Undemocratically 'DROWNED OUT' by the Disproportionately Large English Population in any Combined UK Wide Vote, England are 85% (55 Million people) of the UK Voting Population, Wales are 5% (3 Million people), again 'You Do The Maths'!... (Obviously as this Voting System Favours the Largest UK Majority who have the Power to Change this Unfair System, there appears 'No Motivation' to Change it, although this does Not Justify it's Continued Existence in it's Current Form, as the English Establishment seem to use a 'Lop Sided' version of Democracy because Wales (& Scotland) are the potential 'Competitor's on their Doorstep', so need controlling). Equally, Whilst Simultaneously at the Same Time 'Inside Wales' the Disproportionate level of English people Residing in Wales also possibly Skewing any Specific Welsh Elections, Referendums Votes or Polls, with English people as suggested by Professor Anand Menon (Brexit and Public Opinion 2019, p23) More Likely to Vote Leave in a Brexit Vote, for Example? As previously Stated with the 'Telegraph' National Newspaper article in June 2014 by John Bingham, entitled 'The Welsh Could Become a Minority in Wales as the English Set their Sights West' (projected to be more English than Welsh in Wales by 2080). So 'Why' should Wales put up with this Obvious Distorted UK 'Undemocratic Anomaly', that Actively Dilutes their Own Voice in Wales (& the wider UK), 'again Welsh Socialized Eroded Confidence anyone', as well as a London Media 'MONOPOLY' that appears to continuously Not Highlight this Obvious UK Democratic Concern, that if Adjusted, may Disadvantage their Own Nation of England?!. As stated, in Contrast All of the Celtic Nations People 'Combined' Only make up 3% of England's Entire Population (Office for National Statistics 'ONS' 2011).
This Disproportionate Overwhelmingly Large English Population in Polls, Elections or Referendums in Wales may Skew the UK (& World) Projected Welsh Opinion and Overall Political Party Choices (English people appear to primarily instinctively Tend to Vote for English Based Political Parties in Wales & for general English Interests)? However, the 'Natural Basic Human Instinct' to want to Vote or Poll in Favour of your Indigenous Roots is no one Individual's Fault as such, but this Naturally Occurring 'Conflict of Interests' (Apparently Some What Similar to Why EU Residents in the UK were Not allowed by the English Establishment Authorities to Vote in the Brexit Referendum of 2016, due to a possible Conflict of Interests as European Citizens were part of the club that the UK was Voting to leave?) must be Factored into any Democratic Process, Collation and Analysis of the so called Overall Welsh Nationally Publicised Opinion (the UK Wide Brexit Referendum in 2016 for example)!!...(See the 'Nation Specific Criteria' under the 'What is Britishness?' heading above for a possible Solution?). Furthermore, when a 'Region or City' in the Nation of England Gain 'Internationally Recognised Nation Status' with their Own Recognised International Sporting Teams, Anthem, History & Flag amongst other set Criteria, then they too can be Part of the Nation Specific Criteria Voting System. As you Cannot be a Fully Integrated Part of the Majority and an Outside Minority at the 'SAME TIME'!?...
Although we are Fortunate enough in the UK to have the Basic Elements of Democracy, 'although Never going to be absolutely Perfect for everyone'. This does Not mean that the Current UK Historical Democratic System should be Permanently Fixed and should be Forever Left Alone (especially as it is so One Sided), and therefore can Never be Enhanced, Adjusted or Improved to Spread the Benefits of Democracy to as Broader Spectrum of the Whole of the UK Populations as possible, to Further Promote the Union and the Democratic Process (Not just Exclusively Benefiting the one 85% Majority Nation at the Expense of the Other Three Nations within the UK, We are Either a United Kingdom or Not!!...). Staying the Same Creates Stagnation when the World moves on, but you Refuse to Modernise with it. The UK Population as a Whole either Believe in the Wider 'Core Principles of a Fair Democracy' or 'Not', which would Allocate Equal Voice to the People of All Four Recognised Nations that Form the UK (You Cannot be a Democrat Only when it Suits You!). As the current 'Electoral System' in Britain seems Structured so that in affect a Welsh (Scottish) Vote is Worth 'Less' than an English One. As the British Electoral System appears Designed from London to take Advantage of their Overwhelming English UK Majority Population's Number's (85% of UK Population), with the further Power from London to always Influence or Insist on a Combined UK Vote as and when they Require (Brexit for example?). The Proposed 'Nation Specific Criteria' Within the Four Nations of the UK, Aligned with a Veto Vote (and/or Majority Vote) Between the Four Nation's of the UK at UK Wide Decision Making Level in the UK Parliament, may help in Developing a more Equal and Democratic System within the UK, and Ultimately a Stronger Union (if that is a Concern, if not then ignore this text and carrying on as you are?).
As currently In essence then, 'Subtly', Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland appear to be in the Unenviable Position of Historically & Continuously having 'Equal Taxation Without Equal Representation' (with nearly all the Main Productive UK Taxes such as VAT going Directly into the Bank of England in London to then be Allocated). To Further Clarify, due to England's Disproportionately Large Population within the UK this means that which ever Political Party is in Power Internally within Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland can be Largely Irrelevant as who ever is in Power in England Controls the Whole of the UK (& their Finances). Which again seems to be as a direct Consequence of the UK Democratic System apparently set up so that England's 85% of the UK potential Voting Population will always Decide who Controls the Whole of the UK (& UK Parliament). So in Real Terms due to a Lop Sided Democratic System in Britain it appears that Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland have the 'Same (Equal) UK Wide Taxation as England but Without the Same (Equal) Democratic Representation as the English'.
Moreover, in the some what 'Unusual UK Structure' where by 'Four Individually Internationally Recognised Nations' (with their Own Separate Flags, Anthems, Sporting Teams, Histories, Defined Borders & Cultures) have been Historically Forced to 'Fully' Create just One Supposed Singular Country as a Result of Historical Colonialism & Empire? This makes any possible 'Nationalistic Tendencies' within the UK Significantly more 'Damaging' than if it were Between Separate Independently Managed Countries? Particularly when One Nation has so much More Systemic Power and Population than the Others within the UK! As there has Always seemed to be an Inherent Underlying Historical and Ongoing 'Central London English Establishment (Anglo-Saxon) Nationalism' within Britain, which then Filters Down to parts of their General Population? To Clarify, the Central London English Establishment 'Version' of UK 'Nationalism' appears to be Based on 'Favour' or 'Unfair Bias' of their Own to the general Exclusion or Detriment of Other UK Celtic Nations? However, this Less Publicised Primary Dictionary Defined 'Favour Version of Nationalism' is 'Never Highlighted' on the London British Media? Indeed, there are Specifically 'Only Two Versions' of the term 'Nationalism' in any Recognised Dictionary. The 'First Primary' Version is Based on 'Favour of your Own Nation over Others', and the 'Second' Based on 'Independence' (See 'Wales in Purgatory?' in heading above for Some Easily Evidenced Ongoing Bias Examples?). The London English Establishment's Ongoing 'Contradiction' being that whilst apparently promoting a 'Front of Unionism' through 'Words', Simultaneously their 'Actions' at the Same Time appear to Constantly Undermine the Union of the United Kingdom, with the Easily Evidenced Constant Unequal Historical Primary Favour of their Own Nation's overall Needs (through Historically Utilising the Whole of the UK's Finances, Opportunities & Resources predominantly for their Own Gain)? Indeed, if if were not for Historic English Nationalism (Constantly Favouring their Own) then there would not be a problem of the UK Disbanding. The Irony being that the English Establishment then blame Nationalism (Wanting Independence) deriving form the other UK Nations as 'Divisive', when it is their Nationalism (Constantly Favouring their Own) in the First Place that has historically created the 'Unfairness' that the other Nations in the British isles want to leave?! (See p55 of the Free Electronic Book above under 'The apparent Contradiction of the English Establishment?' section).
Moreover, a 'Federal System' of Rule will Not be Permitted by London as it takes to many powers away from them, this is easily Demonstrated as the USA have had a Federal System for Centuries, and as of yet London have not followed or even showed any signs of ever doing so!... To Clarify, Remaining the Same with No Change is 'Not An Option for Wales' as it has Not worked over the last 300 years for the Nation of Wales with No Evidence to suggest it will work for Wales in the Next 300 years, this has been 'Tried and Tested' and Proven to be 'Inadequate for Wales', they must Now Move On to Other Alternatives. Indeed as asserted by Albert Einstein (quite possibly the most intelligent person that has ever lived, so knows more than you) 'the Definition of Insanity is to do the Same thing Over and Over again but Expect Different Results', please Don't be Insane... (See 'Wales in Purgatory' heading above). However, given any of the three possible Options outlined, Wales will still Need to 'Urgently' Improve in Certain key Areas Regardless... (See 'How can Wales be Improved?' under the 'Wales in Purgatory? heading above)
Indeed, always be Mindful of the Fact that the 'World has Now Moved On Regarding Mass Public Information', as in the Previous 300 Years (or more) of Central London English Establishment UK Rule, the Individual UK Celtic Nations people had No Way of Independently Communicating with Each Other (& to the Wider World) Regards 'Inequality', 'Unfairness' and 'Bias' in the UK on the Wider National and International Stage, as all British Media Public Platforms are all Historically Ultimately Controlled or Influenced through London. But in Recent Times 'Internet Public Platforms' and Instant 'Mass Access to Uncensored Information from a Variety of Leading Experts, Both For or Against' (Balanced) is 'Now' (for the First Time in British History) Readily available World Wide to the Mass Public to be able to Assess, Critique, Communicate and Highlight any Historical and Ongoing 'Unfairness' and 'Inequality' Between the Four Nations of the United Kingdom and their Peoples. Take this Website as an example, without the Internet the Common Sense thinking provided in this text would have stayed Only with the author forever, with No Public Outlet, as it no doubt did with many people before me? Although, the Hope is that the Central London English Establishment will Embrace this New Internet Media Era as an Opportunity to Change and Modernise to Secure the Future Union of the United Kingdom, and Not see it as a Threat that Needs to be Controlled or Resisted!...
I am not too sure how much Evidence is required when the Prime Minister of the UK admits himself that the UK Parliament is an English Parliament in all but name, with the Obvious Bias that comes with that basic Easily Evidenced scenario when setting Overall UK Wide Policy and Law that effects all the Nations and Country's of the UK (when majority voting in the UK Parliament, currently, 533 English MP's, and 117 MP's between the other Three UK Nations), you would assume that something so Obviously Unfair would be Highlighted in the London Media Decades if Not Centuries before, or is the Fact that it is Not Highlighted Further Easy Evidence of the Control of the London Media to Direct the UK Narrative, by Selecting which Issues are Discussed and therefore up for Change and Negotiation, and which Issues can be Ignored and therefore Sidelined, depending one which one's seem to be of Benefit to London or Not, even though this Undemocratic Model in London effectively Nullifies the Celtic Nations Voice in the UK, handing all the UK Wide Power Levers Solely to London and England, under the Guise of Democracy.
The English Ruling Establishment have Limited Time to either stay in the United Kingdom Union but Reform the Structures to provide Parity of Power, Respect and Wealth, or the Union is highly likely to Naturally Disband (much like David Cameron (2016) going to Europe to ask for EU Reform, No Compromised Reform Materialised and Britain then Left the EU)? Indeed regarding Brexit Negotiations (Britain Leaving the EU, 2016-?). As it is just a Section of the London English Establishment only allowed (by themselves) in the Negotiating Room (as well as Historically Overall UK Wide Decision Making in General), it is Regularly said that 'If You've Not got a Seat at the Top Table of Power (with Equal UK Wide Decision making ability) then that Usually means 'Your' on the Menu'... (See 'How can Wales be Improved?' under the 'Wales in Purgatory?' heading above for More Detailed Information on a possible Veto Vote System and/or Majority Vote in the UK). Furthermore, in order to close the gap between Politicians and the Average Person a 'Permanent People's Assembly' is proposed (similar to the Citizens Assembly in Ireland). The proposal is that a permanent people's assembly should meet weekly to Discuss (or Identify) issues with an independent chair. Holding a Majority Vote on the Key Issues of the Day held for Vote in their Individual Nation's Parliaments (on Separate Nation's Internal Issues), or at National UK Wide Level in the UK Parliament (on UK Issues). Each UK Nation should have one based in their respective government buildings. These people numbering approximately 35 people would be chosen at Random from each UK Nation's resident population, ages 16 and above. The Random Nature of the Selection Process means that there can be No Bias on the grounds of Age, Gender, Sexuality, Race, Class, Disability or Nationality, and means they Cannot be hand picked (if a person chooses not to participate then their place will be randomly chosen again). These people will be changed every year. Each people's Assembly decision will be worth 5 AM's, MP's, MSP's or MLS's in each individual Nations assembly voting (such as an M4 relief road for example), or worth 5 MP's each in a UK Wide Vote (that Impacts the Whole of the UK) such as going to War, Change in UK Pension age, Changes in UK Wide Law, and rolling out UK Wide Benefit changes for example. If the origins of the word Democracy in Greek means 'People Power' then this can be the Only Way Forward in Engaging the Mass Disenfranchised General Population into Politics?

The ONS (2011) has Identified that 22% of the Welsh resident population is from England, who might have a different opinion of what is best for Wales when voting in Wales only Elections or Referendums?
England has 85% of the UK Population. Obviously in a London Imposed Combined UK Wide Vote their voice will always be heard over the other three UK Celtic Nations.
An English Establishment Lie...?
