Amazing the English; YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.
SIR - My youngest daughter has lived in the east of England for many years and as such my wife and myself have many English friends.
When I explained the political situation in Wales to my English friends, in which the Welsh Assembly has to apply for permission from the Westminster Parliament to be able to pass laws concerning devolved issues in Wales, they were absolutely astounded and couldn't see any sense in the process at all.
I, too, was equally astounded by the invective of the vociferous ranks of several correspondents on February 10.
The one and only issue for this referendum is to remove this need to ask permission from the Westminster Parliament to be able to pass Welsh laws in Wales in the devolved areas, avoiding an unnecessary, costly and time-consuming process in doing so.
