Do you think England should go back to using the old pendragon flag it had before the Normans came and fucked everything up?

I don't think there was such a thing as "flags" before the Normans. Would we have to change the Union Flag too? It'll look a bit odd with the cross of St Andrew behind, but then we'll only have to look at it for a couple of months so it won't matter much.

IIRC, one of the key reasons the Normans made St. George the patron Saint of England is because of the symbolism of him slaying the dragon representing how they were overwriting Anglo-Saxon culture with their own.

I can see it if you have Scotland and Northern Ireland leave. Then the EW-flag can be both dragons standing back to back as pals.

Or just have them hanging out. Every flag can be a different adventure for the dragon-lads - pubs can have dragons having a pint, hotels have them visiting a local landmark, sex-shops have them uncomfortably looking away from each other after a night only one of them would rather forget. Foreigners might complain that the lack of uniformity can get confusing but they haven't leg to stand on with their generic barcode flags.

By its nature a federation goes against the concept of majority rule. In Britain this is even worse as it implicitly means a constitutional arrangement above the will of democratically elected officials.

How so? There are a good number of Western democratic countries that have federal structures, and they don't seem to struggle with majority rule.

I'd love to consider the idea of Federalism, but successive Governments have been absoultely determined to ignore any positive examples of it, and, by consequence, scuppered any foundation for it due the the fear of skilled people becoming knowledgeable and empowered, if not the dilution of their control. Until this fear is assuaged, The UK will never again have a reputation as a High-Tech, Low-Carbon, innovator, even if we do have the burgeoning capability. Small-minded thinking will forever ensure that we cannot follow the G*rm*ny Example.

The federal structure of the United States was literally designed to avoid the most populous states dominating the country. Degressive proportionality is a system that by design robs power from areas with high-population and rewards those with low.

Federalism means politics is more local, and therefore more representative at the immediate level. If your local MP represented your interests to 25 other MPs in the local parliament of Rudefuckfaceshire, I'm sure he'd have a lot more of a say in things than if he was competing for attention with 650 others in Westminster.

The issue with making politics more local is that you usually wind up fragmenting power on the big issues. If it's about getting my bins sorted, sure, have him sit with 25 other people arguing about it locally - but if unemployment is skyrocketing I don't want a fancy local council like Holyrood talking about cutting education to fund some homeless shelters, I want a national government putting together a giant investment program. On similar lines it's quite possible to find yourself in a situation where a majority of the population want something but a majority of the states don't - especially in a country like ours with big regional disparities. Depending on the constitution and how you represent people on the national level, it might be an ungodly faff to do something like re-distributive taxation.

A unitary state with devolution seems like a much happier medium. You get your local talking shop, and sometimes you even get damn good things out of it, but when its national election time you can just carry on as normal.

You're confusing devolved powers (to regional and local institutions) with federalism. With federalism the local authority has a defined right as an equal to the federal government that makes it not subject to national authority in certain areas, say the 1 person living in Gobacktorudgwicksteamshow.co.ukshire wanted to keep cruel stag hunting but the rest of The United States of Whatever voted to ban it.

The problem with federalism also comes in how power is shifted on a constitutional level to a consensus of states rather than a consensus of people (this is why Americans get presidents who lose the popular vote). A new power structure is created based on circumstantial divisions, gerrymandering and identity politics. In UK political thought a federalist argument is that that the Brexit referendum needed a consensus of regions rather than a simple democratic majority - a qualifier on democratic outcomes, something that would most certainly not be fair to English and Welsh voters. I don't see how you would call the system anything but less democratic by design.

Not necessarily. There was a time when it was like that, but that's just because people enjoyed doing it and I doubt it was exclusive even then. Sometimes you can just let the context fill in the blanks, and if there's not enough context, you can add a Costanza image to subliminally add context.

Apparently there's a group called the White Pendragons who tried to perform a citizens arrest on Sadiq Khan a few years back, using the Magna Carta as justification.

I've been banned all the way into lower earth's orbit before for deliberately misquoting another poster here before so I feel like this is some sort of gas lighting. I am willing to believe the mod who banned me was the person I was quoting though and simply had no other retort for me looking onto their soul and delivering my biting criticism of them saying herps and drops and professing their retardation, so resorted to violence. So this might just be a 'when *I* do it it is okay' scenario right now.

No, though I did teabag one of them once in 2009 (I'm sorry, I was a shit), so if it was the same mod then you can consider that pre-emptive vengeance. I think that was the same night I dropped a fresh pizza face down on the pavement and then picked it up and started to eat it.

And yet across the gulf of space minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded our website with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us.
