Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I think there are two issues here:

  1. The Tories haven't thought through the logical extent of their attitudes. i.e. Two parliaments is a logical outcome, but it's not something they have thought about.

  2. Maybe you underestimate the pressures that may occur in Scotland (maybe Wales too) to not participate in a federal state once all the options are on the table.

Ok on 1. On 2, I think it is the Tories that underestimate them.

The tories don't seem to be thinking very clearly on any issue. To them politics really is a game where they prize is 4 years to hold cuhy jobs.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
