The End

No, sorry to disappoint some anti-devolutionists and pro-unionists - it is not the end of the Blog! It is the end of a long chapter in the history of Britain.
It is the end of New Labour, particularly with regard to Wales and Scotland.
It is the end of Conservative Unionism, also with regard to Wales.
It is the end of bureaucratic centralism in Whitehall and Westminster. It is the end of bungling and incompetence, spin and sleaze. It is the end of closures and lay-offs, cut-backs and the withdrawal of essential services.
It is the end of Britain's proudly proclaimed unwritten constitution which has no regard for its constituent nations - Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
It is the end of the undemocratic approach of government where policies are steam-rollered through without due consultation and attention to the wishes of the electorate.
It is the end of the road for those MPs, and one lord, in Westminster who turn their backs on the land of their fathers and who seek their fortune and recognition in the corridors of a foreign power.
It is the end of tyranny, the end of injustice, the end of exploitation and the end of subjection to an alien culture, with alien values and alien beliefs.

It is the beginning of a new era, for every end augurs a new beginning, with a new spirit and a new anticipation for what will emerge from the ashes of the old regime.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men which, if taken at the flood, leads on to fortune." It is a growing tide which will sweep all vestiges of the Union away forever and transform this land, bringing with it peace and harmony, justice and hope, and a welcome revival in community life.
