With the Scottish National Party winning nearly all the seats within Scotland and an already unpopular Conservative Government in Westminster has brought forward the idea of more regional government within the United Kingdom even England.

Add to this recently a sizeable majority of people of North of England via a hashtag on Twitter indicated that they rather join Scotland than be ruled by a Conservative Government in Westminster sort of says it all about how people outside of London especially in the Midlands and the North are fed up of the London based government which they perceive fails to put their interests first just that of London and the South first.

Myself it is time for all of us within England itself to demand more regional autonomy and government which can look after the needs of the regions far better than a government in Westminster which currently is too removed from the people it represents mostly due to the way it functions. Add to this it will return the government back to the control of the people rather than an elite few as it currently is.

This is now not a pipe dream any more but a necessary to keep our democracy and our freedoms alive in the modern world as we leave things as they are currently are we will see an erosion of both our democracy and freedoms by elite few who will get more powerful and remote.

Personally it is time those of us in the regions of England, Wales and Scotland started to demand proper autonomy from Westminster and Parliament itself. This meaning proper autonomy for a region of the United Kingdom not just certain Cities as the current Conservative Government in Westminster proposes.

So it is time we all worked for a new more representative and democratic government here in the United Kingdom which representes everyone an in new Union of regional governments rather than currently by unified government which does not even represent the people it claims to do so.

All this is long overdue here in the United Kingdom!

After the Scottish Referendum here in the United Kingdom it has got me thinking about the future of the United Kingdom especially with the actions of the Westminster Government and the establishment which literary bullied the Scottish into voting for the Union by using blatant scare tactics.

In the end I am starting to question why we are allowing ourselves being governed by a government and establishment based in Westminster which put it’s own interests before the people it supposed to serve and pays for it through their taxes.

Once again the Scottish Referendum highlighted yet again that government and the establishment in Westminster has become remote from the people it serves and high time we need reform how we are governed here as it is simply not working and damaging the country and it’s capacity to be both economic and political power in the world!

My personal view on the back of the feeling of the Scottish Referendum we as people should make sure that Westminster firstly does not water down the promises it made to give Scotland for more autonomy. Then once this has been sorted out for those of us in the regions of England to demand more autonomy themselves from Westminster itself as it has constantly failed to serve the regions interests over the past decades putting London and the areas around it first.

Plus if we push for a more decentralized government it will finally bring government back to being closer to the people it serves and break the hold the establishment has had on the government of the United Kingdom. Something we need to do if we are to move forward as a country rather than just to looked at by rest of the world as that quaint little country which is allowed to help the United States every few while.

If this actually happens who knows but if enough people like myself start to think like this and get more vocal in media and elsewhere there is a possibility someone will start to listen. But after the Sottish Referendum we have to keep one eye on Westminster government and establishment which will do anything to keep such sentiments being voiced openly!

Once again the MP at Westminster, especially the Conservative Party, are being deceptive again focusing on something happening in the Middle East in the hope the British people take their minds off what has just happened in Scotland.

I am talking about the actions of ISIS both in Syria and Iraq which we are being told by our government is a direct threat to our security in so much they could be responsible for yet another terrorist threat to the United Kingdom. Anyone who has been remotely awake for the last 50 years in this country we as a nation have been under the constantly under the threat of terrorist attack from various quarters which included the IRA which actually did actually have a bombing campaign in the United Kingdom.

We already have the laws and intelligence services in place to cope with such terrorist threats in this country and they have been in place and very effective for decades as in recent history the number of terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom have dropped to nothing in recent decades. Plus the intelligence services have been effective at capturing terrorists even potential terrorists and bringing them to justice.

So basically ISIS and it’s terrorists are not a direct threat to the United Kingdom yet or ever likely to be in the near future and the only reason they even got a foothold in the region of the Middle East was because of the instability caused by the actions of Israel and United States in the region else ISIS would of never expanded as fast as they did.

Anyone with the little intelligence here in United Kingdom should wake up why the MPs and Conservative Party are so focused and getting us focused on the so called threat from ISIS as it is to distract us from the fact we just had a vote on independence of Scotland and the people of the regions want more automaton from Westminster and it’s establishment itself.

Plus both the MP and establishment want to use this an excuse to restrict our freedoms here again under the guise of new anti-terrorist laws to fight this new threat from ISIS. Those of you who had been awake and paying attention for last few years, I’ll repeat this to hammer it home, we have had effective laws and security service which has successfully countered such terrorist groups here in the United Kingdom.

All I can say to people around me do not fall for Westminster’s and Conservative Party’s focus on a preserved threat of ISIS, stick to your guns and not allow them to distract you from the real issues of this country which is the creation of a government which actually works and is more answerable to the people of the United Kingdom even if this means more autonomy for the regions or a creation of a Republic.

Wake up people to what Westminster and the Conservative Party are up too before you wake up one day to nasty realisation all you hard won freedoms your forefathers fought so hard to keep!

Our Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron, is typical Conservative and to be fair MPs of the United Kingdom in so much they really live in the ivory towers of Parliament in Westminster and they have no real understanding of the people that voted them in.

It has recently highlighted by Mr Cameron’s and a number of Conservative MPs remarked that the United Kingdom is a Christian Country which shows a real disconnection to what is actually happened here in the United Kingdom. It also shows a real lack of empathy and understanding of the United Kingdom’s modern society.

Add to this their remarked that Atheist had not made inroads into British Society really shows lack of understanding of Atheist’s in general in so much being an Atheist is a personal choice and unlike Religions has no designs to take the world over or convert the whole of society!

I agree with a growing number of Intellectuals and Writers here who said such remarks made my Mr Cameron and the Conservative party can only have one effect of alienating people and themselves from their electorate even more.

As I said if Mr Cameron and his fellow party members actually came down from their Ivory Towers into real Society here in the United Kingdom will of noticed we now live in a multi-racial and multi-religious society of which Christians and Atheists are one part of this mix.

What the United Kingdom is not is a Christian Country any more but a country which has gone beyond that to a country with a Christian past which has move on towards a more inclusive and tolerant society which accepts a wider range of beliefs and cultures.

This is something the likes of Mr Cameron and his party should be embracing not restating an old fashioned and archaic rhetoric which frankly should have been left in previous Century where it belongs!

But as always it really highlights once again just how far our MPs in Westminster are from their voters almost living in another world from the voters they represent. It shows it is high time we as a society do something about those who govern us before they cause more damage to our democracy and society in general!

The current problems we here in the United Kingdom with the Six Major Power Companies openly profiteer off the backs of the citizens here has highlighted how toothless the British Government is!

Rather than actually taking the said companies to task all they do is ask the said companies if they mind freezing the bills unless costs go up which frankly a peripatetic reaction from a government voted in by the people.

But it once again the current and previous governments put businesses interests before the people who actually voted them in and pay their wages. It shows it is long overdue that the people of this country remind those in Westminster if is not those Executives in their Ivory Towers who put them in power but the votes of the people.

Our current Prime Minister, Mr Camaron, is yet another in a long line of toothless Prime Ministers of both major parties who makes all the right noises but actually does nothing really useful. All these Prime Ministers backed by two major political parties who are basically spent, useless who put votes and money before real policies.

All they have succeed in doing, both the Conservatives and Labour, is leaving the country in a mess even if the current government fixes the so called current economic problems they will not as what they will leave us with something built on very shaky foundations as in the 1990s under Mrs Thatchers government.

So we may have a good few decades yet again but once again we will return to economic problems because like previous governments the current government actually did not tackle the fundamental problems of the economy going for quick fixes which get them voted back into power come the next General Election.

The saddest thing in all this situation are the British people themselves who sit there and moan about the current situation but what do they do about it?

Absolutely nothing falling for the smoke screen put up by the current Government and Media that they are actually doing something about the economy. Add to this a general apathy of the General Public who content themselves with trivial matters which include Celebrity watching, smart phones and social web sites!

In this country it is not Nero fiddling while Rome burns who a whole Orchestra of the General Public playing a Symphony while Britain burns!
