A Bore No More
Theresa May should refuse to grant Nicola Sturgeon a Section 30 Order without a referendum on whether or not to have one.
My generation thought that politics was boring. As, domestically, it was.
In the 20 years between the death of John Smith and the accession of Jeremy Corbyn, the only domestic policy dispute in England was over foxhunting.
And even that ended in a ban that absolutely no effort has ever been made to enforce.
Once devolution was in place, then Scotland, Wales and even Northern Ireland were scarcely, if at all, more thrilling than that.
Well, politics is certainly not boring now.
