Growing calls for federal UK in wake of Brexit vote
[ out of a constitutional crisis the day after euref w pm quitting - should seek a new UK in a new world, different world ] According to Mr Fraser, the answer is federalism. An entrenched Scottish Parliament, an English Parliament sharing time at Westminster, English city regions with administrative but not legislative power, the replacement of the House of Lords with a senate representing "each federated part of the UK."
I do not intend in these musings to examine this particular set of ideas too closely. My attention is more aimed at the other advocate of federalism this week, Labour's Kezia Dugdale.

Andrea Leadsom’s pitch for the Tory leadership: our writers’ verdict | The panel | Opinion | The Guardian
But Leadsom staked out more terrain on the left. Workers’ rights previously guaranteed by the EU would be safe and even “enhanced”. Top boardroom pay was often undeserved and needed to be reined in. If there was money to give away, it would go on tax cuts for the lowest paid: “The richest people in Britain will not be my priority.” //&! blogs.spectator.co.uk/2016/07/want-guide-britain-sunlit-uplands-full-text-andrea-leadsoms-leadership-speech/ &! youtu.be/ezy1WUTUYE8 //&! I will do everything in my power to keep the United Kingdom United. [ may replace/upgrade the block grant to make up for lost EU funding and extra. to avoid indyref 2 ] [...] But my real passion in politics is my desire for social justice – for a transformation of our society. [...] and my absolute commitments it to the emotional health of our nation. [ she really takes centre ground! ] //&!

Could the Scottish Parliament stop the UK from leaving the EU?
Ms Sturgeon, as she has made amply plain, wants more evidence that the people of Scotland are ready this time round to back independence. So she wants time. She needs time.
Hence, partly, the search for alternatives. The search for any means by which Scotland can maintain EU links.
To be clear again, this is a genuine, governmental search. Ms Sturgeon is not bluffing or deploying guile. She, authentically, wants ideas as to how to proceed.

Nicola Sturgeon announces plans for second indyref - The Scotsman
“However, when the Article 50 process is triggered in three months’ time the UK will be on a two-year path to the UK exit door. If parliament judges that a second referendum is the best or only way to protect our place in Europe, it must have the option to hold one within that timescale.” Although the SNP no longer commands a majority at Holyrood, Ms Sturgeon would be able to call on the support of the six Green MSPs to push referendum legislation through parliament. //&!

Inside Story - What's the future of the UK in the wake of Brexit? - YouTube
Felt left behind! proxy protest vote. Dog whistle racism/xenophobia. World of post-fact politics and post-fact campaigning! Still a protest vote vs the elite and establishment always promised Disneyland. Reclaiming democracy at home, from bureaucracy, unelected officials, unaccountable ones, in Brussels. Young voters; 3 in 10 voted. Scewed the result somewhat. This is a warning to mainstream parties around the western world. Politics is being hollowed out, voters go to either extremes as alternative!
