Shenanigins!!

A lot has been written recently about a referendum for greater powers for Wales and a referendum on independence for Scotland but what happens after a succesful referendum? Will the Westminster government roll over and accept it or will that be the time the 'shenanigins' really start; just like the Serbs are doing to the Kosovars (Euractiv)
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague has today (1 December) started to examine the legality of Kosovo's declaration of independence, which is contested by Serbia. The judgment could tip Kosovo's future towards full international recognition or push it back under the auspices of the Serbian state.

Will the 'shenanigins' be more intense depending whether its the Tories or Labour that are in power in London, I suppose it will also depend a lot where our beloved David TC Davies MP is by then!

Unfortunately, the next referendum in Wales will not be for greater powers or even Scottish-style powers but an administrative tidy up of the existing system.
It's hard to believe someone actually planned this system of government, given that it's chaotic and so difficult to implement.
A far better solution would be to scrap the Government of Wales Act 2006, which insists on this referendum, and allow a new vote on Scottish-style powers.
