    Whilst I understand the sentiment, I don't think it would work.
    (I was educated in Scotland and started teaching in Scotland, I voted in the '79 ref and most of my family live in Scotland even though I currently live near Boston and yes I would like to move back)

    What most parts of the UK need is independence from Westminster. The East of England has about the same population as Scotland and is near to the South East, yet as far as infrastructure is concerned it may as well be on the Moon. Compared with Scotland road and rail are almost non-existant.

    We need a better system of Government that de-emphasises Westminster and puts much more power (and money) into Regional Assemblies.

    Except, as has been said by the Brexit extremists within the Tories and those outside (e.g. in Farage's gang), the compromise 'leave' (May's deal, for example) is just as unacceptable to them as not leaving at all...

    I didn’t vote for Farage I voted for the Brexit party as they seem to be the only ones who want to honour the result of the referendum.

    Why do people vote for the anti Semitic, terrorist loving Labour leader?

    :rolleyes: The country is now being deafened by the sound of goalposts being shuffled around to meet political prejudices!

    Farage's gang won 11.55% of the potential votes available. FACT.

    If you add Liverpool's points to Huddersfield Town's, Huddersfield Town win the Premier League.

    And that is worth empowering a climate change denying racist over?

    I always think of how I would explain things to the children I teach. I'm struggling with this one though.

    Apathy or disinterest is always a vote for the winner.

    European elections are sham elections anyway. Those that are elected have no executive power and are only there to rubber stamp the policies put out by the bureaucrats. So this time around it was just a 1 question choice, in or out. We know the Greens, Lib dems and whatever chuka his toys out calls his group are for in. UKIP and Brexit are for out. No-one is really sure what the Labs and Cons stand for.

    Why oh why should we not be able to have a socialist leader - AT LONG LAST of a supposed Socialist party? I don't see you calling that b*tch Thatcher as terrorist backing as she had secret meetings with the IRA - or would you rather revert to a 70s situation of bombing and the rest? I am sure the people of NI are generally relieved that the parties got around a table to hammer out a situation where they could feel considerably safer. Quite how you can say Corbyn is a dictator supporter shows how little you know of him and... before you comment I have heard him, in person, have listened to what he says instead of reading DM versions.

    This would be the LDs who propped up David Cameron whose idiocy has led us into this EU/Brexit mess eh? Wow that makes for a sensible vote.

    A remain vote was a sensible vote.

    Is this a new voting system? Oh! I know it is called clutching at straw voting:p
