Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In my planned utopia each person is going to be their own country.

The UK needs some sort of federalist arrangement like that in the US. The issues that make this work poorly are not determining where the authority for certain policies lies (should health care be a federal or state program, for example), but how federal money is to be allocated to the states.

My guess is that underlying all the "nationalism" in the UK is also resentment over tax allocations.
