The NHS in Scotland is run, quite rightly, by the Scots. The NHS in Wales likewise, is run by the Welsh. The NHS in England is run by…..the British.
Because of the peculiar setup of Westminster and the poorly thought-out effects of devolution, MPs from wherever they come from, are able to interfere with England-only institutions and to represent English public services. Let's say for example, Labour wins the next general election. It is possible that the party could choose a Scottish MP to run English education, or a Welsh MP to run NHS England. If these departmental ministers do a poor job can we sack them by voting them out? No. That responsibility lies with the respective voters of Scotland and Wales, who are totally unaffected by their actions.
In effect, there remains the possibility of having unaccountable ministers running English public services. I object to this most strongly and believe the British government needs to create an organisation to manage English public services which should be run by accountable politicians. Such an organisation should be called an English parliament. There is a similar type of organisation in Scotland. It's called the Scottish parliament and exists to manage the affairs of the Scottish people.
Democracy? What an interesting concept. Unfortunately, such a concept is alien to the LibLabCon that runs Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the same LibLabCon that loves to spout democracy to the rest of the world but fails to practice it in its own back yard. Think of the conflicts and wars in recent years in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria, where the British have got involved militarily trying to assert its brand of democracy on the inhabitants of those countries. The British should mind their own business and tackle the democratic deficit at home.
Still, what else can you expect from British hypocrites?
