The Sunday Herald leads with a piece reporting the pressure on Cameron to allow Scots Tories to break away to form their own party; the Scots haven't taken to either Cameron or Annabel Goldie, and why should they?
I'm all for this. Scotland is an ancient nation with its own laws and legal system, and its own Parliament. Our union at the level of the Realm - with a common defence and foreign affairs structure - doesn't mean that we should seek homogeneity in everything else. And whilst the number of Scots MPs sitting at Westminster should undoubtedly decrease substantially, this should be balanced by a flowering of a particularly Scots culture of politics in which there is a gaping vacuum for a right of centre party divorced from Thatcher's memory.
Likewise in the province of Northern Ireland. I've never agreed with the 'Unionist' part of the Conservative Party; in less time than we may imagine, a popular majority in the Province will return it to the Republic. My dearest wish is that Ireland will then join the Commonwealth in recognition of the strong bonds between us. There is no place in a Tory party for a faction that will seek to cling to the Province against the wishes of a majority of its people.
And why then not a separate but affiliated Tory Party for Anglia? If the Turnip Taliban and Suffolk Swedes are more popular locally than Cameron's metrosexuals with the region's 3m population why not a separate party?
We are truly entering a time of radical change in British politics - a time in which almost anything is possible. To imagine that the hollow and dying incumbent parties can continue in their present forms is truly naive. The three incumbent parties have a combined membership of less than 1% of the electorate, and rely on corrupt finance from foreign governments to stay in power. The lesson the Conservatives must learn is clear
Decentralise or Die.
