Subject: RE: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
"form ONE government based on population and have ONE government for all of Britain? Or would Herself simply laugh at the very thought that you could all get along for the common good?"

We do generally all get along rather well. Prior to 1997 there was just one government in Great Britain. There still is in essance one government with ultimate authority but some matters, mostly which were dealt with by the Scottish Office, are now devolved to a directly elected parliament in Edinburgh. Likewise with Wales.
