I have to admit that I would like to see an English only parliament, but I would hate to see devolved regional ones, my reason is equally selfish,
while I might live in Southern England I live in an area that still fall in the poorest 5% of the country and that would only get worse if the South
was lumbered with London in a regional assembly.
Personally I would love to see an English parliament outside of London, Winchester would be great for me.. and I would even prefer one centred on York
or any of the ancient capitals rather than London, failing that I would prefer to see us break free of England and return to being a kingdom in our
An interesting little bit of information for those that do not know is Henry VII had 2 sons, his first he named Arthur, Prince Arthur of Wales, and
was going to move his capital back to Winchester as he'd identified this as Camelot.. His plan was to invoke a golden age by enthroning King Arthur
at Camelot. however Arthur died and his other Son, the First Prince Harry, became Henry VIII and married Prince Arthur's bide, Katherine.
While that last part is off topic in a sense it also shows that we could have a capital/parliament outside of London that still sits comfortably
within our heritage as a nation.
