  1. OK, I’ll take a swing at this one.
    It may come as a surprise but the administration in Ireland is perhaps more English than the English in England. And has been so since the 18th century. Legally speaking the Irish PM took over the roll of the Chief Secretary and with the Transposing Acts everything that went before the Irish Constitutions was brought in making certain nothing changed. Indeed I would go so far as to say when QE2 and the hubby sat in Croke Park back a while she wouldn’t understand the system but her ancestor Victoria would.

  2. I think English styles of governance and administration are probably more common than many peoples would imagine – the irritation arises when there is an assumption that English governance means English government.
