The federal‐unitary dimension of politics altered significantly during 1997–2007. Devolution was, however, implemented within the contours of the Westminster Model and has also overlooked by far the largest component of the United Kingdom—England. The asymmetrical nature of devolution and the existence of anomalies and dynamic‐tensions complements arguments concerning constitutional anomie.

Keywords:   devolution, National Assembly of Wales, Scottish Parliament, Northern Ireland Assembly, London Assembly, asymmetrical devolution, quasi‐federalism, devolutionary dynamics
