"If we had visionary political leaders we would be offering a radical solution: a more federal UK"

Dear Sir

Our political class is essentially only interested in protecting its own base.

If we had visionary political leaders then we wouldn't still be trying to
reform the House of Lords (now over a century in waiting). Instead we would be
offering a radical solution: a more federal UK. There should be four equal
national parliaments representing the four home unions with a UK Senate sitting
over the top which would have responsibilities for foreign affairs, the
environment, some elements of the economy including the Bank of England and some
of the larger infrastructure needs.

We need a political party to grasp the constitutional mess and to come forward
in time for next year's general election not with piecemeal reforms but an
answer as to how the UK should be governed by 2025. The current system including
an unelected upper house is absurd.

Yours etc
