this website is some kind of horrible, complex, unknown beast that simply could not be tamed, a website so complex that few applications could approach it in terms of functional requirements.

It depends on what the purpose of the website was. If the purpose was to create employment for contractors, and make the health insurance programme look bad, then the requirements would need to be more complex.

The underlying problem is that devolution in the United Kingdom was asymmetric. England does not have an assembly. Actually this means that the English as second-class citizens in the UK, but irrational resentments can be built out of any inequality, even one in your favour.

All they would have to do is decide to make every English MP a member of a "Convention of England" or some such, and give them £1 a year to underline that it's a separate job.

Anything done to make Scotland more unequal - in either direction - will only make things worse.
