Yes, it might be great if the UK was the kind of country where people felt like resolving constitutional issues, setting up for England institutions between a county and the UK in size, changing our electoral system, our unbalanced economy, and reexamining our international relationships. I mean, that's not that big a list, is it? Do that by 2022? No problem. How long did it take for us to chuck hereditary peers and bishops out of parliament? Well, we got rid of most of them at the end of the 20th century, having been talking about since the start of it. Not all, mind you ... Yeah, transforming the country in 3 years is no problem at all. Then we'll really be able to get to grips with the European Question ...
