Three Proposed Referendums

As we are heading for Dante's inferno it seems to me that there is only one solution to put an end to all our woes and misfortunes. Let it be know that I only agree with one of my proposals but I am not the one who indulges in self-censorship, we have the MSM for that.
  1. Referendum on the continuation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
  2. Referendum on the UK's continued membership of the European Union
  3. Referendum on the electoral system of the UK
I only agree with Nr. 2 where Nr. 3 would be disastrous, FPTP works perfectly well it has just been fucked up by New Labour as has everything else. I would hate for the UK to be broken up for it is a force for good, certainly, but it seems that we are very much at odds with each other; England being very Tory and Scotland simply props up the left all the time. That and a multitude of other problems such a spending formulas and their proportion of the electorate etcetera.

It cannot be emphasised enough that the above three suggested referendums are not mutually exclusive. You cannot have one without the other since they are fundamentally interlinked and interlocked - the former affects the other as much as the latter.

UPDATE: It would appear that I was correct in predicting Nr. 2 and Nr. 3. I suppose you would not have to be clairvoyant to have predicted Nr. 3.

Option one - If England, Scotland, Wales and N.I vote to go their different ways then 2 and 3 sort themselves out by default.

That's too sensible - it will never take on with the PTB.

Hehe James, no as always, you are probably right. But as right-wing ideology is left for dead we can but hope tonight.
