Is federalism the only way forward?

Mick Antoniw AM and David Melding AM talk to Jess Blair about the future of the UK and whether a federal arrangement is the way forward.

As part of the IWA constitutional convention we are asking ‘What is the future of the UK?’

Jess Blair is joined by Mick Antoniw, AM for Pontypridd, and David Melding, AM for South Wales Central, to discuss the future of the UK and whether a federal arrangement is the way forward.

Listen below to Mick Antoniw AM talk about decentralisation of power, a proper UK constitutional convention and how politics in England has lagged very far behind Wales and Scotland in terms on thinking about devolution.

Listen below to David Melding AM discuss federal mechanisms; the need for a written constitution, an English legislative process and that these changes are happening in the very British way of reform rather than a federal revolution.
