The Expense of Power

Mr Cameron is proposing that additional powers, including that of raising certain taxes, should be given to the Welsh Assembly. One cannot but think that as well as being something of a preemptive strike so far as the Welsh balkanisationists are concerned that this is also a message to the Scottish electorate, - stay loyal to the Union and you can have more regional power.


Why cannot it be recognised that the regional assemblies are just an additional and unnecessary level of government? Imagine the financial savings that could be achieved from dissolving these regional talk shops for good. No MSP's, no MLA's and no MWA's and none of their support staff including the layers of civil servants pandering to their egos.
