Check on power

Why has there been so little discussion about the way our parliament would be formed in the event of independence? As things stand at the moment, we would have a unicameral system with no checks or balances of any kind – no House of lords, no Senate, no revising chamber.

This is a worrying prospect. Unchecked power almost always leads to abuse of that power and there would seem to be no good reason why we would be the exception.
