Kingsnorth on England

The excellent Paul Kingsnorth has a Comment is Free piece in the online Guardian. He correctly disects Gordo’s top down Britishness agenda and that the biggest threat to the UK continuing comes from the English. It looks like the debate below might open up into an Our Kingdom style regionalisation vs English parliament debate. It has been thankfully free of any English or Scots bashing so far and is worth a look.
