The Shambles UK Licensing - Contact your MP (53* d) RE: UK Licensing - Contact your MP 08 Apr 07


Where it is true that this Act does not currently apply in Scotland - I am sure that our new Scottish Prime Minister in-waiting will soon be claiming his Government's Act to be such a success, that the momentum to impose it or similar measures in Scotland also, will prove to be unstoppable.

And the days of pedantic, 'I'm alright Jock' messages like these will end.

For the appeal for posters to contact their MP does apply equally to those living in Scotland - even when the legislation itself does not apply there.

For the major injustice here is that MPs in Scottish seats are equally responsible for voting for and inflicting legislation that does not apply in Scotland - upon the poor souls of England and Wales.

The point being that perhaps those living in one country whose elected members can inflict legislation on other countries without the risk of upsetting their own constituents - should not perhaps risk sounding quite so smug about living in a country that is doing fine without the rubbish legislation, that they are fortunate to avoid by living there.

So far.........................
