The Guardian view on refurbishing parliament: get a move on | Editorial

Delay only increases the cost and our political culture would benefit from a change of sceneTo describe parliament as a decaying institution, crawling with vermin, would be unjust as metaphor. As a literal account of the state of the building, it is accurate. The Palace of Westminster is in an advanced state of physical degradation, infested with mice and in need of an upgrade. Faulty wiring, antiquated plumbing and other structural inadequacies make it unsafe as a workplace – not just for MPs but also security officers, clerks and administrative staff. The most decrepit Victorian sections need 24-hour patrols by fire marshals.A cross-party restoration and renewal committee declared last year that the most effective remedy would be a massive refurbishment, lasting up to six years, during which period parliament could sit elsewhere. That conclusion echoed advice by independent consultants the previous year that vacating the building, costly though it might be, would be cheaper and more efficient than an ongoing saga of piecemeal repairs. 03-09-17

If Scotland gains devolution should this mean Scottish citizens would be unable to sit in English Parliament? My view of that hypothetical situation is that representatives of Scottish constituencies should not be able to sit in the English parliament. If a Scottish citizen was elected as an MP for an English constituency, however (Like Blair or Cameron for instance), they would have every right to sit in the English parliament. Its not going to happen for the foreseeable future anyway. Even if the SNP gain power in the Scottish parliament they won't be able to push for independence for at least four years, and even then they probably won't have much chance, since such constitutional matters come under the remit of the UK parliament.
my father said that the queen should have given the order to evacuate Northern Ireland of loyalists, and resettled them in the Isle of Mann.? This would have taken an act of Parliament; the Queen reigns through Parliament. This also is not a practical, nor workable act. The loyalists would also have wanted a say in the matter--they had no wish to move.
Would Scotland be able to sustain itself if it split from Great Britain/ the UK? Of course it could, how is it that the British have given Independence to most of it's empire but the three closest colonies, Ireland, Wales and Scotland are wrongly told they can't survive, I think the truth is that England can't survive without the Celtic nations. It's a little known fact that the Scottish Parliament was only suspended with the Acts of Union but the English Parliament was dissolved. The powers of the Scottish Parliament were only given temporarily to the UK Parliament. The Scots Parliament don't need to have a referendum or ask permission to take any or even all of it's powers back. Legally the UK Parliament cannot stop Scotland being independant, however, with the reinstating of the Scottish Parliament, for there to be a new English Parliament the Scots would have to dissolve the UK Parliament and then re-establish the English Parliament with the Scots then granting England it's Parliamentary Powers. I think this is exactly what the UK Parliament doesn't want people to know, but our Politicians and Historians know this, so why go through all of this pantomime about Indi-Max and Lite or whatever they are spouting unless the SNP are just like every other Puppet Regime.
As a 16 year old from Oregon can I move out of my parents house to another state with their permission? Your parents are not legally able to sign their parental responsibility away. Your parent are legally responsible for your health and welfare until you reach the age of majority in your state. In order for you to be able to move from your parents home, you would be required to have a guardian in the state you would be moving. This guardian could be a family member or someone your parents would know or trust. Your parents would be able to allow this person to be your guardian in the state you would want to move. I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck. "FIGHT ON"
Shy girl...? You make the first move because she is either shy or has a somewhat traditional view on dating that says the male should approach first. If you are single and ready to mingle GO GET THE GIRL. If she's making eye contact and smiling, she is 150% asking for you to get her number. And if she rejects you, then she's a sucky human. Sincerely, An introvert woman who makes eye contact with cute men on buses because I have a somewhat traditional view that men should make the first move
If Scotland gains devolution should this mean Scottish citizens would be unable to sit in English Parliament? I didn't think this would be a problem... Odd. Is it English Parliament or is it UK Parliament? It makes sense if it is UK, and they left your kingdom, then they would not sit in your Parliament. If it is English Parliament, why would Scotts sit there??? Seems a little nationalism bleeding through your question? I'd want to leave your Kingdom of I was a Scott, too...

The Guardian view on ‘the mutineers’: protecting parliament | Editorial They are presented as a threat to democracy. But all MPs who challenge the government play a part in strengthening it The “mutineers”, the 15 Conservative MPs pictured on the front of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, looked more like new members of a golf club than a clique determined to undermine the will of the people. But this was not meant as a joke, and it had consequences that were not in the least amusing. The 15, all of them potential rebels against the government’s decision to write the EU exit date on to the face of the withdrawal
The Guardian view on Mugabe’s resignation: the end of an era in Zimbabwe | Editorial Zimbabweans cheered and sang as they learned that their president’s 37-year rule was over. But they understand the dangers ahead Robert Mugabe’s liberation hero to his people. When he lost their support he hung on by every means at his disposal. Now his brutal reign is over. But the hope is shaded this time by deep concern about what lies ahead. Forcing his resignation was hardly simple: it took much manoeuvring, a military intervention and the opening of impeachment proceedings before he had to bow to the inevitable. What comes next is mur
The Guardian view on Britain and the customs union: just do it | Editorial A form of words may still get the UK government over next week’s negotiating hurdle in Brussels. But the real answer is a change of policy In 2016, more than 17 million British people voted to leave the European Union. But – as the journalist to the 2016 Conservative conference . Later, they were included in the Mr Timothy lost his job .
The Guardian view on Theresa May: struggling to survive | Editorial The prime minister’s authority is broken. Yet the Tory party has little confidence that anyone else would do the job better Tory party politics, says a leftwing character in James Graham’s new West End play, Labour of Love , consist largely of “posh squirrels fighting in a bag”. This week, the Conservatives look all set to provide spectacular proof of Graham’s character’s scathing comment. Theresa May has come to the party’s conference in Manchester with her authority broken. In June she squandered her majority in an election she
The Guardian view on the Brexit talks: no veto for the DUP | Editorial Britain, Ireland and the EU had agreed a form of words. The Democratic Unionist party may be playing to its gallery but it cannot be permitted to override the wishes of the people of these islands The former Irish taoiseach in Brussels on Monday was consistent with such cynicism, it also became clear that something must give on the British side if the multiple disaster of no-deal, still craved by the Tory party’s anti-European and deregulatory zealots, is to be avoided.
The Guardian view on the Reformation: justification through faith | Editorial Luther’s 95 Theses were supposedly nailed to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago on Tuesday. It is impossible to read Luther, for all his coarse vitality, as an apostle of common sense. The reformation was an argument within western Christianity, not a rejection of all that had gone before.
The Guardian view on opera: still powerful, still relevant | Editorial The V&A’s new exhibition, the first to be shown in its elegant, recently completed extension by architect Amanda Levete, is devoted to the gloriously extreme world of opera. The show, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House, tells a story that begins with the birth pangs of the artform amid the new sounds of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppaea in Venice in 1643, continues with the Handel-obsessed London of the early decades of the 18th century, and passes on to the shock of the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro in 1786, with its dangerou
The Guardian view on translation: an interpretative and creative act | Editorial Translation is always an interpretation: an act of creation that also, paradoxically, demands a fierce loyalty to the original text. Translators are our guides into other times and territories. The sonnet was a southern European form brought to England through Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch.
The Guardian view on the ANC’s new leader: a fresh start | Editorial With the election of Cyril Ramaphosa South Africa has a chance to recover its moral authority, which the rainbow nation gained in its birth but has been lost in the tawdry dealings of the present South Africa’s African National Congress has done the world a favour in state has been conspicuously failing . Contracts were awarded to cronies; 783 counts of corruption if she had won . Her victory would have paved the way for South Africa to become a hereditary kleptocracy. By contrast Mr Ramaphosa is the best chance for recovering the optimi

The Guardian view on the UK’s next census: counting what counts | Editorial The Office for National Statistics is trying to find an accurate way of measuring the number of trans Britons. It’s harder than it looks Britons have been describing themselves more or less honestly to government at 10-year intervals since 1801, producing each decade a mirror that reflects back the changing world: more populous, healthier, more diverse and (nowadays) getting older. Each time, a few people declare themselves conscientious objectors, and some
The Guardian view on Saudi Arabia: the seventh son rises | Editorial A crackdown on dissent by the youngest heir apparent in Saudi history will not help the desert kingdom find a way out of an economic mess at home and misguided entanglements abroad The ascension in June of Muhammed bin Salman as crown prince of Saudi Arabia was an instant Rorschach test for observers of the desert kingdom. Is he a reformer prepared to drag his kingdom , a repressive regime that writes very large welfare cheques, into the 21st century or a callow princeling whose rise to power could destabilise the region ? The 31-year-old princ
The Guardian view on refugees and migrants: solidarity, not fear | Editorial The world’s steps towards a humane and constructive response are slow and faltering. But people in flight need help and sympathy, not rejection The scale of Rohingya Muslims , forced to flee Myanmar to grim camps in neighbouring Bangladesh. A fortnight ago, other reporters’ graphic accounts of the scale of the trade. The impact of the CNN report drew unflattering attention to the EU-backed programme run by Libya to detain and repatriate migrants in order to prevent them attempting the Mediterranean crossing into Italy or Spain. This is Afri

The Guardian view on Brexit and the Bank: the challenge of populism | Editorial It is 20 years since the Bank of England gained independence. It may not survive the nationalist pressures of leaving the EU Bank of England independence, announced just five days after Labour’s 1997 landslide victory, was a tightly kept secret of the kind that Gordon Brown made his trademark. Yet it was almost at once accepted as the last, critical piece of a framework to protect the UK economy from the inflationary tendencies of weak governments on a par with joining the European Community 25 years previously. Today, at a conference marking
The Guardian view on Theresa May and Russia: keep pouring the sunshine | Editorial The prime minister’s annual speech on foreign affairs might have highlighted Brexit or the disruptive effect of Trump. But it was vital to call out Russia’s propaganda war too Britain’s prime minister makes the most striking lines of the speech, Mrs May said: “I have a very simple message for Russia. We know what you are doing.”
The Guardian view on the Catalonia election: the challenge of compromise | Editorial Campaigning begins this week in an election that will shape Spain and affect the whole of Europe. First, the region’s imprisoned political leaders should be freed to campaign Campaigning in Catalonia’s 21 December regional election begins officially on Tuesday. Opinion polls show pro- and anti-independence political parties running enhanced version of Catalan autonomy for the future. Now things are set to accelerate again. More, not less, political turmoil could lie ahead.
The Guardian view on North Korea and Trump: the crisis isn’t over | Editorial Inter-Korean talks are an encouraging sign of de-escalation on the peninsula. But the underlying threat of Pyongyang’s weapons programme and a reckless US administration will not go away Like so many dictatorships, North Korea loves a good show. Sending its figure skaters and cheerleaders to next month’s Winter Olympics in the South is symbolically useful at home and abroad: promoting an image of national vigour; of a country that is recognised as part of the international system, not a pariah; of a country ready to do business again. As wi

The Guardian view on Catalonia’s election: a mandate for compromise | Editorial Both sides in the dispute about Catalan independence have behaved provocatively. The balanced outcome of this week’s vote presents an opportunity to do things differently the new Catalan parliament in spite of, and perhaps because of, the jailing and exile of key leaders. Yet the result is hardly a triumph for these parties, which although winning 70 of the 135 seats, had the backing of only 47.5% of the votes in a very high turnout. There is no mandate for Catalan independence there. But there is no mandate for the status quo either. Both si
The Guardian view on the Kurdish referendum: a fair question | Editorial The vote by Iraqi Kurds on their desire for independence, due to take place on Monday, poses real risks in an unstable region. But their case deserves to be heard If not now, when? This is the obvious and reasonable question of Iraqi Kurds seeking to exercise the right to self-determination – enshrined by the UN charter, though often ignored – in a referendum on Monday . They already enjoy a high degree of autonomy. They believe their key role in the fight against Islamic State demands recognition, giving them leverage over western powers;
The Guardian view on North Korea and the US: shouting into the wind | Editorial The insults traded between Washington and Pyongyang tend to induce despair or laughter. We need to take them more seriously The escalating rhetoric of both North Korea and the US president is prone to polarise its audience, resulting in two contradictory and equally imprudent strains of reaction. The first is panic. As the Trumpian tweets and blasts of Pyongyang propaganda grow more extreme, the spectre of war coalesces in the public mind. But it is still a spectre, and the most likely outcome is that the immediate crisis will pass as
