I sometimes worry I’ve got into a bit of a rut with this podcast, chatting away about housing and public transport with people who largely agree with me. So this week, to mix things up a bit, I decided to have a fight.
Henry Hill is the assistant editor at Conservative Home (booooooooooo). There, he writes a lot about politisc of the devolved nations of Scotland and Wales – despite his belief that the late 90s devolution settlement that created the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly was a historic mistake (hissssssssssssssssssssss).
So: what is Henry’s argument? Doesn’t a nation have the right to self-government? Hasn’t the centralised British state been a disaster for much of the United Kingdom? And what about the parallels with Brexit? All these and more questions will be, if not answered, then at the very least discussed.
